In the following file, Clang makes a warning for something on which GCC does
not.  Since there is a specific attribute to forbid null pointers as arguments,
it seems to me that the best behavior here is that of GCC.

clang -Wall format.cc -o foo -c
format.cc:7:12: warning: format string is not a string literal (potentially
insecure) [-Wformat-security]
1 warning generated.
