Subject: [PATCH v2] gcc-plugins: fix gcc 11 indigestion with plugins...

Fedora Rawhide has started including gcc 11,and the g++ compiler
throws a wobbly when it hits scripts/gcc-plugins:

  HOSTCXX scripts/gcc-plugins/
In file included from /usr/include/c++/11/type_traits:35,
                 from /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-redhat-linux/11/plugin/include/system.h:244,
                 from /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-redhat-linux/11/plugin/include/gcc-plugin.h:28,
                 from scripts/gcc-plugins/gcc-common.h:7,
                 from scripts/gcc-plugins/latent_entropy_plugin.c:78:
/usr/include/c++/11/bits/c++0x_warning.h:32:2: error: #error This file requires compiler and library support for the ISO
 C++ 2011 standard. This support must be enabled with the -std=c++11 or -std=gnu++11 compiler options.
   32 | #error This file requires compiler and library support \

Patch is more complicated than would otherwise be needed, because
older gcc (4.9, 5.4) have gnu++11 but throw an error due to a gcc bug
