I think the KBUILD_USERCFLAGS portion and the modpost.c fix for it
make sense regardless of the -std=gnu11 change, but your change
to KBUILD_CFLAGS is not actually needed because the warning is
already enabled there -- gnu89 allows intermingled declarations since
gcc-3.4, so the warning flag was added during early 2.6.x kernels.
