Yes, the warning needs to be fixed.

But I don't have any problems with adding the new enum in a patch level
release. The only thing it can break is that your code won't compile
against 4.8.1 anymore if you use it. This is really one of these cases
where we should make a small exception to our rule of not adding any API
to a patch level release.

Please go ahead and back port the change to 4.8.
