Just a follow up, those two patches have been picked up and should be in
this coming release:

https://git.kernel.org/balbi/usb/c/58582220d2d34228e5a1e1585e41b735713988bb
https://git.kernel.org/rostedt/linux-trace/c/bf2cbe044da275021b2de5917240411a19e5c50d

As of next-20200331, with the former applied (because it is not there
yet) along with this patch, I see no warnings on arm, arm64, x86_64
all{mod,yes}config.

Cheers,
Nathan
