Once the C++17 `__attribute__((fallthrough))` is more widely handled by C compilers,
static analyzers, and IDEs, we can switch to using that instead. Also, we are a few
warnings away (less than five) from being able to enable -Wimplicit-fallthrough. After
this option has been finally enabled (in v5.3) we can easily go and replace the comments
to whatever we agree upon.
