I guess if other people look at the same CI and send patches as well
then there's some use tying them all together.

Sure, on the other hand it doesn't really cost anyone anything if you do
that.

That is true, this one isn't fixing any bug but then the line does get a
bit fuzzy all round with things like warnings and coccinelle output -
even just having the warning pop up is noise for people looking at the
output even if there's no concrete problem.  Again I don't see it as
something that's worth getting worked up over.
