Are you referring to the the various places in your patch (in e.g.
) where the patch changed things from this form:

  warning_at (location, OPT_Warray_bounds,
              "[...format string...]", ARGS...);

to this form:

  warning_at (location, OPT_Warray_bounds,
              "%G[...format string...]", stmt, ARGS...);

If so, there are two location_t values of interest here:
(a) the "location" value, and
(b) gimple_location (stmt)

My recollection is that %G and %K override the "location" value passed
in as the first param to the diagnostic call, overwriting it within the
diagnostic_info's text_info with the location value from the %K/%G
(which also set up the pp_ti_abstract_origin of the text_info from the
block information stashed in the ad-hoc data part of the location, so
that the pretty-printer prints the inlining chain).

[aside, why don't we always just print the inlining chain?  IIRC, %K
and %G feel too much like having to jump through hoops to me, given
that gimple_block is looking at gimple_location anyway, why not just
use the location in the location_t's ad-hoc data; I have a feeling
there's a PR open about this, but I don't have it to hand right now].

It looks like the old location was (a), and now you're seeing (b),
since (b) is the location of the statement.

Whether or not this is a problem is difficult to tell; what does the
full diagnostic look like? (you only quoted the diagnostic_show_locus
part of it).

Hope this is helpful
