Got the above error running checkpatch locally then got the email above and I assumed this warning can be ignored is this the case?

Code that caused the warning:

} else {
if (fixed_mac_type) {
static int iface_idx;

pmd->eth_addr.addr_bytes[0] = 0x00;
pmd->eth_addr.addr_bytes[1] = 'd';
pmd->eth_addr.addr_bytes[2] = 't';
pmd->eth_addr.addr_bytes[3] = 'a';
pmd->eth_addr.addr_bytes[4] = 'p';
pmd->eth_addr.addr_bytes[5] = 0 + iface_idx++;
} else
eth_random_addr((uint8_t *)&pmd->eth_addr);     <<<<<
