Most of them are actually false positives, probably due to us. Gnulib
uses some more modern code extensions and the compiler keeps warning
us about it since we set the C language to std=gnu89. I'm not happy
about this fact, but this discussion has happened multiple times and I
don't think we will be moving to a more modern setup anytime soon. I
would personally prefer using *at least* C99, a more recent version
like C11 would be even better, but not all compiler would support
