Subject[OT] Non-GCC compilers used for linux userspace

Not even GCC fully supports C99 (although I think it does support
that keyword when passed -std=c99 or -std=gnu99), and I suspect that
a majority of the other compilers for which we would want to add
support in the kernel headers would not support C99 or would do a
poor job of handling inline functions.

But my question still stands. Does anybody actually use any non-GCC
compiler for userspace in Linux?
