Isn't this a Duff device for performance[1]?

In which case it might be better not to modify it and just go
with the fallthrough marking?

Another similar case can be found at
drivers/scsi/aic94xx/aic94xx_sds.c:714:

 714 static void *asd_find_ll_by_id(void * const start, const u8 id0, const u8 id1)
 715 {
 716         struct asd_ll_el *el = start;
 717
 718         do {
 719                 switch (id1) {
 720                 default:
 721                         if (el->id1 == id1)
 722                 case 0xFF:
 723                                 if (el->id0 == id0)
 724                                         return el;
 725                 }
 726                 el = start + le16_to_cpu(el->next);
 727         } while (el != start);
 728
 729         return NULL;
 730 }
