Let's have a look at the output of the following commands:

$ PAGER= git grep 'typedef.*[[:blank:]]bool;' include
include/linux/types.h:typedef _Bool bool;
$ PAGER= git grep std= Makefile
Makefile: -fomit-frame-pointer -std=gnu89 $(HOST_LFS_CFLAGS)
Makefile: -std=gnu89 $(call cc-option,-fno-PIE)

From https://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gcc-7.2.0/gcc/C-Dialect-Options.html#C-Dialect-Options:
‘gnu89’
GNU dialect of ISO C90 (including some C99 features).

I think this means that the Linux kernel tree can only be compiled correctly
by compilers that support the C11 type _Bool.

What will the impact be of that choice on filesystems implemented in userspace?

Thanks,

Bart.
