I prefer to keep the code consistent and then bulk convert it later. Its a
bit ugly to read when its mixed up with "//" and "/* */" right now. We can
convert it to // all at once later but until then it'll be good to keep it
consistent in this file IMO. When I checked the kfree_rcu() code, it had more
"/* */" than not, so this small change is less churn for now.

thanks,
