I am fine with supporting gcc 4.5. This patch really looks like it could
be turned into something upstreamable. I mean, we already have a manual
fallback for assert_cc(), so it shouldn't be too hard to figure
something out that works on gcc 4.5. I mean, i think it would be totally
OK to throw warnings on gcc 4.5, as long as it compiles. And the
DISABLE_WARNING_xyz stuff is really only stuff to make warnings go away,
that is all...
