But defvar is described elsewhere, and index entries about it should
lead there.  And after my changes, the description there mentions its
use for suppressing warnings, so I don't think an index entry leading
elsewhere is needed.

Feel free to suggest other topics, but "defvar" is definitely not one
of them.
