checkpatch false positon on EXPORT_SYMBOL

The below looks like normal code but the last export symbol gets the warning,

WARNING:EXPORT_SYMBOL: EXPORT_SYMBOL(foo); should immediately follw its function/variable
#16: FILE: kernel/acct.c:70:
+EXPORT_SYMBOL(test_export); /* Error ! */

It seems to have to do with the comments at the end of the line. The first two examples don't have warnings because I removed the comments on different lines. comments on the variable and export symbol lines gets the error tho.

(warning may not be a proper patch)
