Huh, I thought GCC knew to not emit that warning unless it actually
found control flow reaching the end of the function; since the infinite
loop has no break in it, you shouldn't need the return. Annoying.

I think it makes more sense to move the wait_event_interruptible to the
bottom, and make a while out of it.
