C PATCH for PR64856 (initializing range of elements in C99)

We reject the following testcase in C99 mode, because in C99 we always
wrap COMPOUND_LITERAL_EXPR in a SAVE_EXPR when initializing a range of
elements, even though the expression is required to be constant.  As a
consequence, we error out with "initializer element is not constant".
It's been like this since Roger's fold changes in 2003.  Since the default
is now gnu11, I think we should accept the code even in C99.  So this patch
makes the C FE treat the expression the same in both C90/C99 modes.  There
is no need to add any pedwarns at this spot.

Bootstrapped/regtested on x86_64-linux, ok for trunk?
