Well, that answers my question above.

I think the right approach is to:

 * Test -Wno-this-is-not-a-warning-option.  If gcc accepts it,
   add -Wno-something to disable the nonnull checkĀ·

 * Review the misleading indentations and if there are only a few, fix
   them in a downstream patch.  Or, if there are many, decide to
   tolerate them.
