What kind of ancient C standard are you working against?
// isn't "C++" any more, and "register" variables are sooo 60's, man.
Pass the toke,
And if you think "register" variables are outdated, please remove the
CONFIG_REGPARM option from the Kernel source.
Removing a "//" comment makes sense in this case because a "//" comment
between hundrets of "/* */" comments looks extremly ugly and shows that
the source is "patchworked" and unstructured.
Today a lot of people forget about the basic rules of coding. You too. :)
