IMO this is ok. If the 'extra-line value of `comment-style' tells that the
comment should look like this

/*
 * some comment
 */

it'd be kind of inconsistend if just a missing RET at the end of buffer
resulted in this

/* some comment */

which effectively means discrepancy from the customization setting.

(The initial version of my patch ignored the `extra-line' setting in this
special case, but it was a thinko rather than intention.)

I haven't noticed any related issue but yes, string-trim-right is more
precise. If the (supposedly accidental) leading space should be removed from
the value of `comment-start', it should probably happen elsewhere in the code
because it's not specific to the 'extra-line style.
