Agreed.

However the last warning

        objtool: hvsock_on_channel_cb()+0x1d: function has unreachable instruction

is my fault -- it turns out to be a problem with old gcc-4.4 and
gcc-4.6 which we enabled 2 days ago. I just disabled reporting this
odd warning because it complaints on ~10000 functions all over the
place, which can only be sanely fixed in the toolchain.

Thanks,
