(In reply to Paul Wankadia from comment #10)

There has been no change since the last comment and I'm not currently working
on it.  Since Clang rejects the test case as well I'm also not too inclined to
change GCC to accept the code.  (I do note that Intel ICC accepts it, possibly
for compatibility with GCC 5.)

To make this work I would suggest to use a zero-length array instead.  That
makes it clear that a GCC-specific extension is being used and it's also
accepted by Clang and ICC.
