If we go with existing rules, then either pls patch coding style, or
be a bit more liberal in what you accept. E.g. fallthrough vs fall
through seems a bit a bikeshed (and will be an endless source of work
for you).

I'd also claim that "this shouldn't happen, dump a backtrace and hope
for the best" style macros like i915's MISSING_CASE or WARN_ON (as the
only thing) should count as an auto-fallthrough annotation.

From a quick look, that would cover everything in your patch.
