V2579. MISRA. Macro should not be defined with the same name as a keyword.
This diagnostic rule is based on the software development guidelines by MISRA (Motor Industry Software Reliability Association).
This rule is only relevant for C.
The analyzer detected a macro whose name overlaps a keyword.
#define if while #define int float #define while(something) for (;(something);)
Changes in the meaning of keywords are confusing and can lead to incorrect code.

The diagnostic also ignores keyword overrides if they are identical in terms of semantics, or the macro is expanded into a keyword of the same name.
#define const const
