SubjectRe: [PATCH] media: do not use C++ style comments in uapi headers

Good.

In addition,

"warn if __u8, __u16, __u32, __u64 are used outside of uapi/"

Lots of kernel-space headers use __u{8,16,32,64} instead of u{8,16,32,64}
just because developers often miss to understand when to use
the underscore-prefixed types.
