Hey Eric.

This is still a suboptimal test because it should
allow optional spacing after the semicolon before
the EOL.

if ($line =~ /\S\s+;\s*$/)
I still think it's not really necessary to
check for end of line. It'd also be OK to
report spacing issues on code like:

for (i = 0 ; i < 100 ; i++)
and
case foo: x = 1 ; break;

So maybe the test should be

if ($line =~ /\S\s+;/)
But this test emits a CHK on lines
that add a line with just a ; so that
needs a small update to

if ($line =~ /^\+.*\S\s+;/)
Also the test should probably be adjacent
to all the other "SPACING" tests so maybe:

diff --git a/scripts/checkpatch.pl b/scripts/checkpatch.pl
index cb08290..aadcfba 100755
