Try make W=1 (which includes kerneldoc checks!). Or clang (don't try
clang unless you are a masochist, especially not right now as -Wvla
upsets it).

I'm trying to get W=1 as part of the pre-merge warning set, at the same
level of severity as ignoring checkpatch.

We do. Our code is clean at W=1 except for the odd mistake. Let's keep
it that way. As new gcc warnings are developed, we will squash petty
nuisances and sometimes outright bugs from the code (it has happened
before and will happen again).
