There are still people who have no choice but to run GCC on very slow
machines. A few percent can make a big difference in some situations.
This isn't a terribly big deal to me, but it's not particularly hard for
us to either disable warnings when bootstrapping with --disable-checking
or to fix the code so that it doesn't warn, so why not do that?
I'll omit my usual gripes about how the warnings in question work. :-)
