Well, I consider compiler warnings bugs. I have had plenty of my
compiler warning patches sent as bug fixes for an -rc. Furthermore, this
patch was sent three times by different people, that should give you some

The first version was sent on December 11th, it looks like your pull for

December 16th so I figured it might be destined for 5.11 but I could not
