this one and only case where we should report warning for "while".
Simply ';' is most likely dirty in this code.
but we report this warning also for your code which is wrong.

+ Although technically:
+ while (xxx)
+ Is valid code (and the indentation shows that the intent of the
+while loop is on the xxxx itself) the problem is that it is common
+to write code like this:
+ while (xxxx);
+ Which is what the warning catches. This matches exactly the
+behavior of C and C++ compilers that warn about an empty statement.
