We might want to globally suppress -Warray-bounds and -Wnonnull when
compiling with GCC (not with Clang) since GCC has frankly become pretty
bad with these and they're almost always false-positives. It's a shame,
because these warnings sometimes do catch serious bugs, but relying on
Clang developers to notice these might be sufficient.
