Subject: [PATCH] checkpatch: Add --strict tests for braces, comments and
 casts

Add some more subjective --strict tests.

Add a test for block comments that start with a blank
line followed only by a line with just the comment block
initiator.  Prefer a blank line followed by /* comment...

Add a test for unnecessary spaces after a cast.

Add a test for symmetric uses of braces in if/else blocks.
If one branch needs braces, then all branches should use braces.
