Note that I already try to submit a fix for this warning 3 years ago
(https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/418075/) and it was rejected with
the following comment:

Again, I don't think Linux enables this warning. What did you do to
produce this? In any case, it's a bad warning that doesn't take macros
into account, and the answer is not to make the code less clear by hiding
the fact that zero is a special case.
