Hi Lu,

We'll fix this and the other checkpatch.pl warnings.

Some functions in our code that are registered with seq_file needed to
have an unused parameter since seq_file.h defines the show function as:
int (*show) (struct seq_file *m, void *v);

But a lot of other functions including the one you pointed don't need
to have the unused parameter. We'll remove it from those.

Would the recommendation be to use pr_warn instead of pr_err or should
we entirely skip the message altogether?

Thanks,
