Re: [C patch] Fix non-regression part of PR29092

Not having this extension at gnu99 was a deliberate decision, in recognition of how C99's compound literals differ from the old GNU "constructor expressions" extension; that is, the compound literal is a temporary object and you wouldn't allow such initialization with a named object instead of a compound literal as initializer.

However, this decision was for structure and union types and different considerations may apply for vector types which aren't in the standard at all.

If so, here is a patch that does this -- actually this is how I had solved the problem first, and then decided it was too much of a hack...

I had already bootstrapped this patch on i686-pc-linux-gnu before posting the other one.
