Two release cycles.  It was queued for the previous release, was posted
to the mailing list, was de-queued, and then re-added for the last merge

That's not no warning - that's almost six months.


So what you're telling me is that in six months, not one driver has been
touched to address this issue?  So, if no one in that time has done any
work on this, then what use is it going to be making the kernel issue
a warning instead?

So, since this has been known about for six months to the day, I completely
fail to see how making this a warning instead will create the necessary
motivation for the issue to be addressed.
