I've clarified in the changelog that I'm adding the -Wno-shift-negative-value
everywhere that -Wextra is used, not because I saw actual warnings
for greybus and btrfs. The -Wextra is copied from scripts/Makefile.extrawarn,
so this keeps it in sync. Ideally we should have an easier way for a
subdirectory to get the W=1 flags without copying the list, but the
patch I started to do this never got close to getting integrated.
