Subject: Re: [PATCH] gcc-plugins: fix gcc 11 indigestion with plugins...

So after more digging, at least some clarity has surfaced.

It looks like it's not a kernel source tree issue, it's a g++ issue fixed in g++ 6 and later.

And it looks like there was an intent to backport it to 4.9 and 5.4:

The bugtracker doesn't show an equivalent for 69959 being closed against 4.9.x or 5.[56], has a patch for one of the
gcc-supplied files that tosses the warning, but that way lies madness...

Not sure what we want to do here - the main alternatives I see are:

Tell people still using 4.9/5.4 to either live with the warning or upgrade to 6 or later

Make the flag a variable and pass either -std=gnu++98 or -std=gnu++11
depending on the output of 'g++ --version'

What say the peanut gallery?
