Er, this appears to be bogus: I'm only guessing, but I'd expect that
the pci_enable_device() call is actually doing something useful, and
removing it is going to break *something* - Have you booted a kernel
with this code enabled and these patches applied?

As for this warning, I think that there is a better solution.

Thanks,
