As written, my current understanding is, that when switching the
coreboot toolchain from 4.9(?) to 5.3(?), the coreboot project switched
from GNU89 to GNU11.

My current proposal [1] is to explicitly set that, so that people can
still use GCC 4.9 – Debian 8.5 (Jessie/stable) ships GCC 4.9.2.

Reviews are welcome.
