Checkpatch is already kind of loud, so I'm not sure I like the idea -
you even say yourself that it's just a style nit.
But just in-case there are a lot of people who do like this, then you
have to do some work to get rid of false positives. Try something like
the following.

1. apply your patch.
2. run something like
find ./ -name "*.[ch]" | xargs ./scripts/checkpatch.pl -f | grep -a3
Continuations
and then go through the results looking for false positives.

One that I see right away, is with #if
For example,

#39: FILE: arch/arm/mach-lh7a40x/lcd-panel.h:39:
+#if defined (MACH_LPD79520)\

WARNING: Continuations outside of macros should be avoided
#40: FILE: arch/arm/mach-lh7a40x/lcd-panel.h:40:
+ || defined (MACH_LPD79524)\
