This and the __must_check-bool() renaming now done and sent in v2.
Thanks!

At the end of the day, I'd rather not have a way to ignore the overflow
in this way -- I'd rather have a set of wrap_mul_overflow() helpers
instead. Then we've got proper annotation of the expectation (and a
place for function attributes to be added to tell sanitizers to ignore
overflow).
