I only have a mild preference for __maybe_unused because it's harder
to get wrong. I have sent dozens of bugfixes for drivers that have
incorrect #ifdef, and I'd prefer not having to send that many in the
future, so I try to convert them to __maybe_unused whenever a problem
shows up to slowly change the coding style in the kernel.
Build time coverage is another point here, but that is also what caused
problems in my patch since the declarations were hidden (I assume not
