We use them in a couple of places. When I originally introduced
them, the idea was to add more infrastructure around these
to replace the various -Wno-... flags in local makefiles with
more targetted annotations, and then have a way to control
the warning levels (W=1 W=2 E=1 etc) per directory and per file,
but I never completed the work to add the interesting bits.

The idea  of __auto_type is to avoid the more deeply nested macros.
If the preprocessed file turns into an absolute mess, adding a temporary
variable may help. Not sure if that applies here.
