Subject: [PATCH v3] checkpatch: add check for continue statement in UNNECESSARY_ELSE

UNNECESSARY_ELSE only checks for the usage of else after a return or
break. But the same logic is also true for continue statement.

else used after a continue statement is unnecessary. So add a test
for continue statement also.
