checkpatch: improve network block comment style checking
Some comment styles in net and drivers/net are flagged inappropriately. Avoid proclaiming inline comments like: int a = b; /* some comment */ and block comments like: /********************* * some comment ********************/ are defective. Tested with $ cat drivers/net/t.c /* foo */ /* * foo */ /* foo */ /* foo * bar */ /**************************** * some long block comment ***************************/ struct foo { int bar; /* another test */ }; $ Signed-off-by: Joe Perches <joe@perches.com> Reported-by: Larry Finger <Larry.Finger@lwfinger.net> Cc: David Miller <davem@davemloft.net> Cc: Stephen Hemminger <shemminger@vyatta.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
