If it's so bad that it's not even ready for testing and has lots of
know bugs, then I will just go and disable it on syzbot. Just say.
But then it will never become production-ready until we re-enable
testing and go through this cleaning process later.

But I would expect that if the code is in mainline, even if in
staging, we should productionize it as quickly as possible, in
particular using fuzzing as guidance.
And in the end pr_warn can even provide a more informative error
message as compared to the WARNING with cpu number, process id,
register values and the stack trace with is always the same for the
ioctl.
