That bit was added to CodingStyle by Randy Dunlap back
in 2006 by

commit b3fc9941fbc6efe5cb77728adb0fb12be363e73e

    [PATCH] CodingStyle updates
    
    Add some kernel coding style comments, mostly pulled from emails
    by Andrew Morton, Jesper Juhl, and Randy Dunlap.
    
    - add paragraph on switch/case indentation (with fixes)
    - add paragraph on multiple-assignments
    - add more on Braces
    - add section on Spaces; add typeof, alignof, & __attribute__ with sizeof;
      add more on postfix/prefix increment/decrement operators
    - add paragraph on function breaks in source files; add info on
      function prototype parameter names
    - add paragraph on EXPORT_SYMBOL placement
    - add section on /*-comment style, long-comment style, and data
      declarations and comments
    - correct some chapter number references that were missed when
      chapters were renumbered
