The script “checkpatch.pl” pointed information out like the following.

Comparison to NULL could be written …

Thus fix affected source code places.

...  could be written all sorts of ways.  But what's the advantage of this?
Personally I find "x == NULL" easier to read, and AFAIK psychology backs me
up on the idea that negation is harder on the brain and worth avoiding when
possible.
