I can't think of a case that this warning is a bug (maybe David can
explain more), but seems like a small fix that can stop a big spew of
warnings, and IIUC this is the lone instance we see in the kernel. In
that case, I prefer a tiny change to outright disabling the warning in
case it does find interesting cases later.
