Here's the equivalent checkpatch output for that file.
It has a few more instances.
Is what checkpatch suggests unreasonable?

total: 0 errors, 0 warnings, 6 checks, 157 lines checked

NOTE: For some of the reported defects, checkpatch may be able to
      mechanically convert to the typical style using --fix or --fix-inplace.

lib/lz4/lz4defs.h has style problems, please review.

NOTE: Used message types: MACRO_ARG_PRECEDENCE

NOTE: If any of the errors are false positives, please report
      them to the maintainer, see CHECKPATCH in MAINTAINERS.
