And, -pedantic -Wno-c90-c99-compat - outside C99 mode - doesn't disable 
the relevant warnings (I'd think of it as logically like -pedantic 
-Wno-long-long, so it should disable them, while leaving all the -pedantic 
diagnostics for features that aren't in C99).  Though I think implementing 
that could reasonably be a followup fix.

E.g., in C90 mode, -Wlong-long is more specific than -Wc90-c99-compat, 
which is more specific than -pedantic.  So the "long long" warnings should 
be determined by any explicit -W(no-)long-long if given, otherwise by any 
-W(no-)c90-c99-compat if given, otherwise by -pedantic, following the 
general rule of the most specific option taking precedence (and 
command-line order only being relevant when multiple variants of the same 
option are used, e.g. -Wlong-long -Wno-long-long).  Outside C90 mode, 
-pedantic is irrelevant to such warnings; -W(no-)long-long should take 
precedence over -W(no-)c90-c99-compat if both are used.  For warnings 
without a more specific option such as -Wlong-long, of course it's a bit

"a specific option".

OK with that change.
