checkpatch: allow reporting C99 style comments
Presently C99 style comments are removed unconditionally before actual
patch validity check happens. This is a problem for some third party
projects which use checkpatch.pl but do not allow C99 style comments.
This patch adds yet another variable, named C99_COMMENT_TOLERANCE. If
it is included in the --ignore command line or config file options
list, C99 comments in the patch are reported as errors. Acked by
upstream maintainer (see
TEST=tried processing a patch with a C99 style comment, it passes the
check just fine unless '--ignore C99_COMMENT_TOLERANCE' is
present in .checkpatch.conf.
