No, Linus happily stands up for //.

I really don't like one-liner /* */ comments. Let's face it, // was
the _one_ thing C++ got right, among all the horrible bad decisions.

I think we should just start moving to // in general, but only when
adding new ones (ie I don't want to see any automatic conversion
patches).

And it's _particularly_ true for the whole case where we mix
one-liners like the SPDX line with block comments. That's where /* */
really sucks.
