[PATCH] driver core: remove unheeded warning about driver methods

From: Alan Stern
Date: Wed Jun 17 2009 - 12:00:04 EST

This patch (as1263) removes a warning which has been present for so
long, and consistently ignored, that it obviously is not doing any
good. It gets triggered on pretty much every boot by the SCSI disk
and cdrom drivers. Evidently nobody cares.
