This appears to falsely complain about parenthesis alignment in conditional statements with multiple opening parentheses. For example, these will report a check condition:

if (test_and_set_bit(nr,
addr))
baz();
if (!(func_a(x) &&
func_b(y)))
baz();
Assuming my stupid mailer will screw up the indentation above, the 'a' in addr in the first example is meant to be immediately below the 'n' in nr, and the two 'f's in func_* are meant to be vertically lined up in the second example.
