> warn_addition_in_bitshift has many false positives. Some results when searching for `[-Wshift-op-parentheses]` and the most common diagnostic `operator '<<' has lower precedence than '+'; '+' will be evaluated first`:

Some of those look like true positives. For instance, the fix to https://github.com/rdkit/rdkit/issues/145 was https://github.com/rdkit/rdkit/commit/38ca41c8abc3f4429ae8df2ad79d3ff8b3fea0b6 which looks like the warning behaved as intended. https://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/intel-threading-building-blocks/topic/431422 doesn't really have anything to do with the diagnostic.

FWIW, in most of the cases, I feel like parens would clarify the code (heck, they're already using parens in many of these cases). e.g.,
fairymax.c:776:46: warning: operator '>>' has lower precedence than '+'; '+' will be evaluated first [-Wshift-op-parentheses]
                        MovesLeft = -(GamePtr+(Side==WHITE)>>1);

dbvspis.c:606:20: warning: operator '<<' has lower precedence than '+'; '+' will be evaluated first [-Wshift-op-parentheses]
    i3 = i2 + (*np + 1 << 1);
               ~~~~^~~ ~~
FWIW, I'm fine leaving this default on.
