__attribute__(()) perhaps, which is often seen in kernel code.

Do not recognize "typeof" as a keyword, so that code can use this
word as an identifier. You can use the keyword "__typeof__"
instead. -ansi implies -fno-gnu-keywords.

Ergo it's a GNUism/GCCism. As long as <whatever> is used in kernel code,
it should be documented.
