openat was only half-using it.  dprintf was also broken.  I'm committing
this as a stop-gap measure, until I finish the much bigger job of the
attribute approach.

Thanks for the tip.  And you are right - as long as we depend on gcc, then
we can use __typeof__ to make applying the attribute typesafe via a single
reusable macro (where the macro takes two arguments: foo and "message"),
without needing to retype the parameter list for each function thus labeled.

Good point.

But in English, USE_WARNING parses ambiguously - is it the active verb
(rhyming with "lose"), or the noun (rhyming with "loose")?  With
_GL_ARG_NONNULL, we have noun-adjective; that is, the macro is telling us
that an ARG has the property of being NONNULL.  We want the macro in
question to convey the fact that using a function will trigger a warning.
 USAGE_WARNING always implies the noun.  So I'm starting to think
_GL_WARN_ON_USE may be a better name.

Subject: [PATCH] fcntl-h, stdio, sys_ioctl: fix declarations

We cannot use a function-like macro to provide a link-time warning
of a variadic function during GNULIB_POSIXCHECK; at least, not
without assuming C99 variadic macros.  We can, however,
use an object-like macro (as was already done for printf).

On the other hand, this patch is only a stop-gap measure to fix
an obvious bug; a more complete patch that switches from a
link-time warning (specific to GNU ld, gcc, and ELF image) to
a compile-time attribute is in the works.

* lib/stdio.in.h (dprintf): Use of link warning on a variadic
function must not take arguments.
* lib/sys_ioctl.in.h (ioctl): Likewise.
* lib/fcntl.in.h (openat): Likewise.  Declare extern.
(open): Add a link warning.
