Yes, the gmond plugin doesn't have a receive function, because it gets
its data "asynchronously". It starts a new thread which waits for
incoming network packages and dispatches them whenever it receives any.
There is no "read function" which needs to be called periodically. So,
if you only need the "csv", "syslog" and "gmond" plugins, this message
is correct but nothing to worry about.

(Setups like this are the reason why this message is merely a "notice",
not a "warning". It's noteworthy, but not a problem.)
