This one seems to make the code look worse: You are only adding the comment
to one case, not all of them, and it was perfectly understandable

Further, there are a couple of other functions following this one that
also don't have that comment.

It seems checkpatch missed all the other cases because they contain '...'
lists, whereas the one above does not. I think it's better left alone.
