Thanks for your patch, but this change is not safe. you're removing a
read that could do two things. The first is that the read "flushes"
the write just above to PCI (it's a PCI barrier), and the second is
that the read can have some side effects.

If this change must be done, the code should be to remove the
assignment to ctrl_reg, but leave the read, so the line would just
look like:
er32(CTRL);

This will get rid of the warning and not change the flow from the
hardware perspective.

Please do not apply this.
