Yeah, I understand the rational, but WARN's should usually not be
triggered from user space (and -EINVAL is some telling user space
already that it is doing something wrong). If you care about a
notification maybe use a pr_warn_ratelimited() instead. Otherwise, I
suggest updating the documentation in which cases one could get -EINVAL.

Thanks!
