Yeah, makes sense moving them to W=2, or to make them somehow produce
less noise.

On my eyes, it doesn't sound too much. I suspect that,
with gcc-9, it should produce more warnings, though.

Perhaps we could "promote" most of those to W=0.

A significant amount of those warnings appear with "make htmldocs".

Not having the kernel-doc warning as part of W=0 helps to make
very hard to have them cleared.

IMHO, those should be enabled by default with W=0, at least for the
files that are included on some kernel-doc tag.

I mean, perhaps, when W=0, Kernel build could run:

$ ./scripts/kernel-doc -none $(git grep kernel-doc:: Documentation/|cut -d: -f4-|sort|uniq|grep -vE "\bsource\b")

That produces 165 warnings (against v5.3-rc4 + media -next patches).

Thanks,
Mauro
