If it affected a LTS build I'd say yes, but since that isn't the case
I think it's not necessary.

drivers/gpu/drm/i915/intel_guc_submission.c:183:13: warning: function
'has_doorbell' is not needed and will not be emitted
static bool has_doorbell(struct intel_guc_client *client)
The function is only called within a GEM_BUG_ON macro, which does not
evaluate the expression unless CONFIG_DRM_I915_DEBUG_GEM is set.
Instead of disabling the warning it would probably be better to mark
has_doorbell as __maybe_unused.
