And that's exactly the reason why I think instead of removing warning on
checkpatch, it makes sense to convert to an error for a while. People are
tending read documentation on internet and thus might have outdated one. And
yes, the compiler doesn't tell a thing about it.

P.S. Though, if majority of people will tell that I'm wrong, then it's okay to
