I use __attribute__((unused)) for a function to be unused in GCC. As I
like to compile my code in -Werror (and make sure I remember to turn it
off when making distribution tarballs)

I'm not really sure if it's needed, as I only run high compilation warning
(-Werror) when I develop the code, once I distribute I turn down the error
level (for autoconf not enabling --enable-maintainer-mode) so that these
issues don't crop up.. which so far I haven't seen them as I have the
__attribute__((__unused__)) set on a few of my modules and haven't had any
complaints thus far.
