Well, if an explicit -Wno-format doesn't work, that's a clear compiler
bug. But we want to move to disabling warnings within C files using
DIAG_* macros anyway, instead of command-line options, so if that works
where the command-line options don't then that's also a sufficient fix.
(And if the warnings can be fixed by changing the test - if they're
nothing to do with what it's intended to test - then such test changes
make sense to replace -Wno- options, as in my patch
