Wrong goal.  The goal of a patch should be to improve the code.

To remove false-positive warnings from compilation can only be a 
secondary goal.

(See my other post.)

BTW, which compiler do you use?  I quickly enabled ubifs here, first 
without and then with its various sub-uptions, but didn't get a warning 
here with "gcc (Gentoo 4.3.2-r3 p1.6, pie-10.1.5) 4.3.2".
