For the record, I don't see anything here as a problem.  I did half
suggest, and did reviewed-by just spelling out GNU11.  So long as that
isn't a problem for clang-5, I don't think this is a problem.  The "$X
is a warning" are things we've had to long since clean up.  This is also
not me suggesting that we make use of any particular new language
