There is a note in the kernel documentation which states:

Note that the WARN()-family should only be used for "expected to
be unreachable" situations. If you want to warn about "reachable
but undesirable" situations, please use the pr_warn()-family of
functions.

It seems to me that "harmless" doesn't really fit the expected
use of WARN(). Should it possibly be converted to pr_warn() ?

Thanks,
Guenter
