    RTFM, as usual :-) This time gcc's info ... It's all explained there ...

    P.S. noreturn mean exactly what you'll think: that function will NEVER return.
    It'll supress some compiler warnings and sometimes optimizer can use that info
    as well (I'm not sure if it really used by optimizer though)...
