Thank you for forwarding this patch.


The code diff looks good to me,
but I'd like to be sure about git-log before applying it.


As far as I tested, the statement
"Clang will warn about unknown warnings but will not
return false unless -Werror is set." does not seem true
on recent versions.



[1] When I use version 3.3

masahiro@grover:~$ clang --version
clang version 3.3 (tags/RELEASE_33/final)
Target: x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
Thread model: posix
masahiro@grover:~$ clang -foobar -c -x c /dev/null
clang: warning: argument unused during compilation: '-foobar'
masahiro@grover:~$ echo $?
0


[2] When I use version 3.4

masahiro@grover:~$ clang --version
clang version 3.4 (tags/RELEASE_34/final)
Target: x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
Thread model: posix
masahiro@grover:~$ clang -foobar -c -x c /dev/null
clang: error: unknown argument: '-foobar'
masahiro@grover:~$ echo $?
1




I agree we can apply this patch anyway
even if the original motivation is not true anymore.


Can you check it out,
and add a little more comments if you agree?
