There isn't a way to make it silent, unfortunately (maybe I'll add one).

These warnings are harmless - they just indicate that Haddock couldn't
find the right place to link to for these Prelude types.  If you want to
generate the hyperlinks, then you need the .haddock file for the base
package, which is distributed with GHC, and pass the --read-interface
flag to Haddock (see the docs for details).
