checkpatch: fix false positives for --strict "space after cast" test
Commit 89da401f6cff ("checkpatch: improve "no space after cast" test") in -next improved the cast test for non pointer types, but also introduced false positives for some types of static inlines. Add a test for an open brace to the exclusions to avoid these false positives.
