   Says ISO.  You should have, in fact, gotten a warning from GCC about
   them.  Why they were not declared an error I do not know.

Only when -ansi is specified right?  We've been using these constructs
in the Linux kernel for years and GCC still isn't complaining so I'm
guessing this is the case (that -ansi causes the warning).  Actually I
don't remember any warnings for this when bootstrapping the new sparc
rewrite code which has all warnings enabled...
