kbuild: move -Wunused-const-variable to W=1 warning level
commit c9c6837d39311b0cc14cdbe7c18e815ab44aefb1 upstream. gcc-6 started warning by default about variables that are not used anywhere and that are marked 'const', generating many false positives in an allmodconfig build, e.g.: arch/arm/mach-davinci/board-da830-evm.c:282:20: warning: 'da830_evm_emif25_pins' defined but not used [-Wunused-const-variable=] arch/arm/plat-omap/dmtimer.c:958:34: warning: 'omap_timer_match' defined but not used [-Wunused-const-variable=] drivers/bluetooth/hci_bcm.c:625:39: warning: 'acpi_bcm_default_gpios' defined but not used [-Wunused-const-variable=] drivers/char/hw_random/omap-rng.c:92:18: warning: 'reg_map_omap4' defined but not used [-Wunused-const-variable=] drivers/devfreq/exynos/exynos5_bus.c:381:32: warning: 'exynos5_busfreq_int_pm' defined but not used [-Wunused-const-variable=] drivers/dma/mv_xor.c:1139:34: warning: 'mv_xor_dt_ids' defined but not used [-Wunused-const-variable=] This is similar to the existing -Wunused-but-set-variable warning that was added in an earlier release and that we disable by default now and only enable when W=1 is set, so it makes sense to do the same here. Once we have eliminated the majority of the warnings for both, we can put them back into the default list. We probably want this in backport kernels as well, to allow building them with gcc-6 without introducing extra warnings.
