That should work but since -Wunreachable-code-fallthrough is off by 
default, I did not really see a reason to include it in KBUILD_CFLAGS. I 
do not have a strong opinion though, your version is smaller than mine 
is so we can just go with that. I'll defer to Gustavo on it since he has 
put in all of the work cleaning up the warnings.

Cheers,
Nathan
