I believe that it is the responsibility of the people implementing the new
warnings to ensure that all of LLVM (and that includes clang, libc++, etc)
builds cleanly with the new warning(s) enabled - and that this should
happen *before* the warning is enabled.

This is what I have done when I have made changes to clang.
