So far my test case hasn't triggered any other noticeable issue, nor
splats from any debug option I have enabled, so removing the warning
sounds good to me.
I'll throw Syzkaller at a kernel with the warning removed. Given this is
the first time I've hit this after many days worth of fuzzing recent
kernels, I suspect it won't hit anything interesting by tomorrow
