    Sorry, that is bullshit. The change was entirely designed to prevent
    people on such architectures hacking general files where there *do*
    exist older compilers, to avoid breakage being introduced without it
    being flagged.

    This has happened more than once in the tree.

    When all the architectures have a minimum gcc requirement that accepts
    mixed code and declarations by default, it can be removed ...
