GCC does not ignore warnings that it does not recognize:

[1/16] Compiling C object 'src/src@@ephymain at sha/ephy-action-bar.c.o'.
../../../../Projects/epiphany/src/ephy-action-bar.c:32:32: warning: unknown option after ‘#pragma GCC diagnostic’ kind [-Wpragmas]
 #pragma GCC diagnostic ignored "-Wasonteuhasoe"

So you need compiler guards somehow to avoid introducing new warnings (so it needs separate macros for GCC and Clang), and probably also compiler version guards for new warnings (which will just have to be done manually).

__has_warning() would be really nice to have in GCC. :(
