Yes, these warnings are not specific to this patch. And, additionally these
should already addressed in the commit
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/davem/net-next.git/commit/?id=ac383f58f3c98de37fa67452acc5bd677396e9f3
I was trying to avoid making the same changes here to avoid merge
conflicts when 'net-next' merges with 'net' next.
