checkpatch: handle C99 comments correctly (performance issue)
Daniel Walker [Tue, 22 Sep 2009 00:04:35 +0000 (17:04 -0700)]
This fixes the sanitation process in checkpatch.pl so that it blocks out
the text after a C99 style comment the same way it does with block style
comments.  This prevents the text from getting processed as regular code.
