This kind of warning doesn't belong in Clang. We can't warn about even a
reasonable number of system-specific differences, so Clang would never be
useful as a porting tool for such issues. So (at best) we'd end up with some
set of warnings that isn't enough to be useful for someone porting, but
generates a lot of noise for someone who has already done the porting effort.
Warnings that have such a high false-positive rate (say, by warning about every
init_priority attribute on the Mac) don't belong in the compiler.
