While reviewing some dts diffs recently I noticed that the hunk header
logic was failing to find the containing node. This is because the regex
doesn't consider properties that may span multiple lines, i.e.

	property = <something>,
		   <something_else>;

and it got hung up on comments inside nodes that look like the root node
because they start with '/*'. Add tests for these cases and update the
regex to find them. Maybe detecting the root node is too complicated but
forcing it to be a backslash with any amount of whitespace up to an open
bracket seemed OK. I tried to detect that a comment is in-between the
two parts but I wasn't happy so I just dropped it.

What if the property spans more than two lines?

	property = <something>,
		   more,
		   <something_else>;

Can the second line "more," begin with a word, or are the angle brackets
mandatory?

I understand that the continuation lines can begin with a word when the
property is an expression that is distributed over a number of lines.
Such continuation lines could be picked up as hunk headers.

But I don't want to complicate things: The hunk header patterns do not
have to be perfect; it is sufficient when they are helpful in a good
majority of cases that occur in practice.

You could insert more lines to demonstrate that "<x>," on a line by
itself is not picked up.

Sufficient distance to the incorrect candidates above. Good.

Do I understand correctly that the updated form, "/ {", is the common
way to spell a root node, but "/" or "/word" are not?

Devil's advocate here: insert ';' or '=' in the comment, and the line
would not be picked up. Does that hurt in practice?

This behaves the same way as just

	"!=\n"

no?

Angle brackets aren't mandatory, but it is very odd to have a property
with mixed numbers and strings because parsing becomes difficult.

Maybe I should add another test?

Correct. A root node is '/' and the '{' opens the node. There is the
possibility of something like '/delete-node nodename;' or
'/delete-property property;', where the latter exists inside some node.
The regex would need to avoid all of those.

I don't think it hurts in practice so I'd like to ignore it.

Not exactly. Properties don't always get assigned. There are boolean
properties that can be tested for by the presence of some string with an
ending semi-colon, like 'this-is-true;'. If we just check for not equal
to a line with a semicolon and newline then we'll see boolean
properties. Should I add that as another test?

This is is the _multi_line test case, right? ;) Just add one or two
lines between the <3> and the <4> that look like common real-world cases
to show that those lines won't be picked up. I don't think that another
test file is required.

Sure, no problem.

I was just refering to the added line, not the combination of the two lines.

But while you are speaking of it:

I agree that a test case with a Boolean property would be great.
