I've never seen this warning before. It's also a false positive in that
technically the mailbox message will always have at least one bit set in
"mask". However, I don't see how the compiler could know about it, given
that the data comes from an external source, so I think this makes sense
as a hint to the compiler. So:

Acked-by: Thierry Reding <treding@nvidia.com>

Can you provide more detail on what exact version of which compiler you
used that triggered this? I wonder why it's never presented itself with
the compiler that I use.
