That would perhaps be the better long term solution. Something tells me
that this topic comes up periodically. : ) For the record, I've
confirmed that this problem exists while using the latest version of
smatch [1] but I doubt my abilities to fix smatch. So I chose to squelch
it instead.

Feel free to ignore if this is a topic already discussed in other
threads. To be honest, I did not search the mailing list to determine if
this particular issue was already discussed.
