Thanks Himanshu for the suggestions.

However, I'm not sure to follow the discussion. The original problem was
that Coccinelle was removing a comment that should be preserved. I think
that this occurs because the line just below the comment is completely
removed. Coccinelle considers that the comment belongs with that line and
if the line is removed the comment won't make much sense.

In Himanshu's solution, the code is just not transformed at all, so as a
side effect the comment stays too. Is that what is wanted in this case?
