[PATCH v2 0/7] Staging: rtl8723bs: fix warnings in HalBtc8723b1Ant.c

This patchset fixes 134 checkpatch.pl warnings in the file drivers/staging/rtl8723bs/hal/HalBtc8723b1Ant.c

Although checkpatch.pl reports a large number of checks, these are for issues that were present in the original code. In fact, in the process of fixing warnings, the total number of checks decreased from 548 to 545.

All patches are syntax fixes and no logic is changed. As there are a lot of different warnings, to make things easier to review, each patch addresses a different set of warnings in the following order:

- braces {} are not necessary for any arm of this statement
- please, no space before tabs
- suspect code indent for conditional statements
- Statements should start on a tabstop (this type of warning is solved alongside the previous warning type in the same patch because the fix for one warning addresses the other)
- Comparisons should place the constant on the right side of the test
- Missing a blank line after declarations
- Avoid unnecessary line continuations
- Block comments use * on subsequent lines

Change in v2:
- Patch 7: Remove dead code inside block comment instead of changing the comment formatting, as suggested by Dan Carpenter
