Subjectcheckpatch query regarding .c and .h files..
Date
scripts/checkpatch.pl contains this code near line 3070:

if ($realfile =~ /\.(h|s|S)$/) {
$comment = '/*';
} elsif ($realfile =~ /\.(c|dts|dtsi)$/) {
$comment = '//';
} elsif (($checklicenseline == 2) || $realfile =~ /\.(sh|pl|py|awk|tc)$/) {
$comment = '#';
} elsif ($realfile =~ /\.rst$/) {
$comment = '..';
}

Was there a specific reason why .h files have /* */ and .c files have C89 // on
the SPDX comment line?

Would anybody like a patch that fixed checkpatch to allow either flavor on .c and .h files?
(I know I would, I just blew close to an hour trying to figure out why it whined about a
SPDX in a .h file I'm getting ready to upstream...)
