When use to check network related patch, it will report
WARNING: networking block comments don't use an empty /* line,
use /* Comment...

So, add --ignore NETWORKING_BLOCK_COMMENT_STYLE into .checkpatch.conf
This will help to keep all driver include network related driver use
the same comment style
