Hi Jiri,

I think the suggestion was to either:

1. WARN_ON_ONCE(); return 0;      <= this was v2
2. WARN_ON(); return -ESOMETHING; <= this is v3
(But not, WARN_ON(); return 0;    <= this was v1)

And after v2 it was determined that the approach taken here in v3 is
preferred.

So I think this patch is consistent with the feedback given by Jay
in his reviews so far.
