I saw this in multiple places already and I think fix is wrong. The
point is that the code is correct - the fall through is marked
properly.

It is just the GCC which has to be fixed not the code. You want to
adjust the code for specific version of GCC and what if GCC changes
its warning? For example GCC might require "fall through: "... or any
other syntax. Another point - what about clang's syntax?

Best regards,
Krzysztof
