As usual with coding styles, it's a matter of preferences, feelings, and
getting used to changes. I personally dislike C++-style comments in kernel
sources. The fact that we have few of them makes them seem out of place, and
thus disturb code reading. My preferences might change if the style becomes
more prominent and I get used to it. Or maybe not :-)

This being said, I'd personally keep changes minimal here, and give the last
word to the driver maintainer(s) as for any coding style matter.
