  Log Message:
  checkpatch: Omit some checks on comment lines.

Comments are more freeform than code, so this patch tries to ignore many
checks on comment lines.  It assumes that any line that begins with "/*"
or "* " is a comment line.  (Without a following space, "*" might be
something like "*x = 1;".)
