Apart from a little whitespace tweak, this is identical to what I already had.

Except it adds this operation, without describing it at all in the
changelog.

Is this some brainfart, or am I missing something? I can see some sense in
a WARN_ONCE(format...), but not in a WARN_ONCE() which takes a `condition'
and should be called WARN_ON_ONCE(), which we already have.

As it appears that you didn't add any users of WARN_ONCE(), I shall
delicately step away from this patch.

More care, please?
