Subject: [PATCH v2] scripts: checkpatch: Check multiple blank lines when deleting code

By matching only current line starting with '+', we miss the case
when deleting code makes consecutive blank lines appear: this patch
then makes it possible to detect this case by also matching current
line starting with ' ', which is an already existing blank line.
