-Wunused-parameter is the only default GCC warning that we currently disable everywhere.
We should stop disabling this warning and instead fix the code.

The plan is to do this incrementally, piece by piece.

How to repeat:
Use -Wunused-parameter when building with GCC.

Suggested fix:
Three different ways warnings can be fixed:
- Remove the unused parameter
- Remove the parameter name, only keep the type (e.g. virtual functions)
- Use MY_ATTRIBUTE((unused)) (e.g. virtual functions with doxygen)

Which way warnings should be fixed, must be evaluated in a case-by-case basis.
