That file has other issues that should be addresses too.
1) It uses int rather than wide specific types
2) It uses structs with questionable alignmner as per David's comment

Keeping the warning until all issues are sorted out is preferred.
If we 'fix' the warning then we loose the reminder that this file
needs to be eyeballed.

This is not a quest to eliminate warnings - this is a quest to
raise the quality and correctness of the exported headers.
The warnings serves as reminders where to focus attention.
