Just to practical notes:

(1) Please test that lint(1) is not stupid enough to bail out on it.
(2) Kill the !__STDC__ branches. Preferable doing this first.

(1) How do I check that? Run a distribution with MKLINT=yes would be enough?

make subr_prf.ln or so in the kernel build directory. It's just a useful
to know case, not a show stopper (IMO) if lint doesn't support Yet
Another Part Of C99.

It doesn't seem to choke on it. BTW, the KASSERT* macros are already
"linted away" in libkern, so I can't see how lint could get affected
by them:

It could still choke on parsing the lines. Thanks for testing.

Just curious: clang comes with a static analyzer nowadays; wouldn't it be any better than the old lint, or is it missing features that can't make it a decent replacement for lint?
