I don't expect this is to be a big issue, as long as the latest clang behaves
as expected. There are many warnings that are only produced by one of the
two compilers, so this is something we already deal with.

I think it's more important to address the extra warning that Nathan
reported, where clang now complains about the intermingled declaration
in a system header when previously neither gcc nor clang noticed this.
