> Introducing a warning inside i915_driver_load() just for tests we get:
> [ 4535.233717] Missing case (ret == 0)
> [ 4535.233868] WARNING: CPU: 1 PID: 795 at drivers/gpu/drm/i915/i915_drv.c:1341 i915_driver_load+0x42/0x10e0 [i915]
> which is clear enough.
> v2: remove __func__ since this is already on the warning.
