Mauro, Doug,

The 0-day robot found using WARN() on built-in kernels confusing. Upon
further thought pr_warn() is better and will likely also not confuse
humans too.

Boris, provided maintainers Ack, please consider these patches.

These depend on pat_enabled() exported symbol which went in through
the x86 tree, so I suppose this also needs to go through there. This
is an example issue of cross-tree collateral evolution follow ups,
one reason why I punted the a RFD and proposal for a linux-oven [0].
In that regard I suppose follow ups like these would need to go through
that tree as well.
