I'm extremely annoyed by this all, but I've pulled this.

Please just *STOP* doing any W=1 fixes (and most definitely W=2 ones -
many of those warnings are just plain garbage and indicate more about
the compiler than they do about the code) if you can't then make damn
sure that the warnings that actually matter are always *ALWAY* taken
care of.

I absolutely abhor warnings in the default build, just because they
only result in people ignoring them. Which is exactly what happened
bvecause you then tried to care about the more-or-less worthless W=1

So a clean build is really important to me. And developers who don't
check and follow up on warnings in the normal build are something that
pisses me off no end.

Now something like 25 commits are pointlessly rebased just because you
didn't check warnings properly.
