So, instead of my earlier drive-by fix, I've since distilled what it
actually is that is causing/fixing this (strange...) problem.  OK to push
the attached "Get rid of infinite recursion for 'typedef' used with
GTY-marked 'gcc/diagnostic-spec.h:nowarn_map' [PR101204]"?  (This, of
course, only fixes the symptom but not the actual underlying problem.
But I'm not going to dig deep into 'gengtype' at this time.)  ;-)
