Hi Cole,

Thanks for the output. I've just posted a patchset which should remove
all of the warnings except the one emitted by -Wnonnull-compare so
please test and let me know if it improves things.

Like Segher I'm not 100% convinced by the -Wnonnull-compare warning in
this case, so I've left this for the moment. It does raise an eyebrow
that Fedora are building with an as-yet unreleased compiler but can you
confirm as a starting point whether the fix for PR69835 as indicated by
Segher is being included in the gcc6 build you are using?
