Yes, some embedded devices probably can use that too according to the
source code comment.  Guess thats why anthony suggested to do it that
way, and I liked the idea too, so I just did ;)

IIRC I tried to turn them on globally and found myself swamped with
warnings.  So I took the easy way out and enabled them only for the xen
bits I'm working on.  I like those warnings, they catch sloppyness and
help writing clean code.  They are in no way required though.  We can
add them globally nevertheless, I can keep them as local patch, I don't
mind much.

Bad habit.  gcc warns these days on "if (foo = 42)", so the reason to
write "if (42 = foo)" is gone.  I'm still doing that for -- say --
historical reasons?
