Pavel is right.

You should always be looking for that kind of stuff instead of just
doing a sed script. And the thing is you're in the best place to think
about how each struct member is used right now because you're modifying
each use to make sure it compiles. There is a possibility that no one
else will think about it ever again now that checkpatch doesn't

So in a way, it's better to leave the checkpatch warning as-is until
someone can fix it properly.

No. We do not write code for the future. No one knows what the future
will hold. Delete any code which is not currently useful.
