That's not a disclaimer.  A disclaimer would be a statement like "This
message is the opinion of the author only and not the opinion of FooCorp".
Disclaimers always say that someone is not responsible for something.

Rather, it is a legal threat, and one that forbids us to do what we
always automatically do with every message on the list: forward it around
the world and publish it on the gcc.gnu.org web site, making it available
to people who are not addressees.  This kind of legal threat is extremely
rude, though many organizations seem to think it is a good idea to
threaten people they correspond with for some reason.
