            Bug ID: 66007
           Summary: [5 Regression] Narrowing conversion inside { } results

Different narrowing behavior between GCC 4.9 and GCC 5

This is related to PR c++/65801 which allowed -Wno-narrowing to be used to
silence narrowing errors in C++11 mode.

Compiling something like "int foo[] = { 1, 0xFFFFFFFF, 3 };" with "-std=c++11
-Wno-error=narrowing" will initialize foo to {0, 0, 0}, whereas GCC 4.9 would
initialize it to {1, -1, 3}. (Attached is the assembler code generated by both
GCC versions.)

(This change in behavior causes at least one crash in Chromium; when using the
search box on the settings page, the tab will crash.)
