Yep it should be. Won't result in a bug though, an unused pointer is an
unused poiner, no matter what known or unknown type it points to.

Reverting just this one patch will make your kernel go boom when you run
on a skylake or more recent Intel cpu, have updated your microcode and
do:

echo 0 > /sys/bus/event_source/devices/cpu/allow_tsx_force_abort

And then try and create perf events. See also commit:

Subject: perf/x86: Fixup typo in stub functions

Guenter reported a build warning for CONFIG_CPU_SUP_INTEL=n. While
harmless (an unsed pointer is an unused pointer, no matter the type) it
needs fixing.
