This chunk triggers this, obviously correct, warning:
    drivers/misc/mei/hbm.c: In function 'mei_hbm_dispatch':
    drivers/misc/mei/hbm.c:596:3: warning: 'return' with a value, in function returning void [enabled by default
       return 0;
       ^

I know that v3.13.2 has just been released. Would it be worth the
trouble to submit a clean up patch (v3.13 specific, as in v3.14-rc1 this
function returns int)?
