Put a SPACE after the comma. "continue" should usually be on the next
line. It doesn't make sense to fix the formatting only partially.

BTW I wouldn't trust checkpatch so blindly. Also keep in mind checkpatch
is only a tool and that maintainers have full authority to ignore the
problems (or "problems") it spews.
And I would merge all the changes (which make sense) and send them in
one patch - that should increase the odds of it actually being applied.
To be honest, fixing the style isn't an easy job.
