What I meant here is that I'm adding -Wno-shift-negative-value to all
four places in the kernel that already use -Wextra.

I have an older patch series that does this, but it also does a few other
things that I couldn't quite get right in the end with all combinations of
compiler versions and warning levels, so I did not submit that.
What this allows is to have per-directory statements like
to force all the default warnings (-Wall etc) to be errors, while
making the W=1 type warnings (-Wextra etc) normal warnings.
