Really, I thought Linus hated them. Personally, I find them rather ugly
myself. The only user of them I see in the kernel/ directory appears to
be for RCU. But Paul's on the C/C++ committee, so perhaps he favors them.

The net/ directory doesn't have any, except perhaps to comment out code
(which I sometimes use it for that too).

The block/, arch/x86/ directories don't have them either.

I wouldn't go and change checkpatch, but I still rather avoid them,
especially for multi line comments.

/*

Instead of:

// When it comes to multi line comments I prefer using something
// that denotes a start and an end to the comment, as it makes it
// look like a nice clip of information.

Which just looks like noise. But hey, maybe that's just me because I
find "*" as a sign of information and '//' something to ignore. ;-)
