Shift/reduce and (for GLR parsers, which that sqlbison.y is) 
reduce/reduce conflicts are somewhat common and expected, so there's 
even %expect and %expect-rr declarations that specify the number of 
expected sift/reduce and reduce/reduce conflicts, respectively, and 
Bison will then only warn if the numbers are wrong.  Though, of course, 
somebody familiar with that sqlbison.y should probably have a look 
before blindly adding such declarations to silence the warnings.
