The last change in sdvo related to this function is from commit
ce22c320b8ca ("drm/i915/sdvo: convert to encoder disable/enable"), which
dates from 2012.

It has not been used or changed for a long time. I think it could be
converted to a block comment. This will preserve the documentation
purpose. What do you think?

All this will avoid having "if (0)".

I meant making them a block comment. For example:

/*
* Enabling HiZ Raw Stall Optimization, at this point, causes corruption.
*
* Calling wa_masked_dis with the arguments wal, CACHE_MODE_0_GEN7,
* HIZ_RAW_STALL_OPT_DISABLE will cause an HiZ corruption on ivb:g1.
*/

/*
* Should fallback to uncompressed if we increase size
* (zstream->total_out > zstream->total_in) by returning -E2BIG?
*/
