According to me and a co-worker that used to be in compiler design, yes it

What happens:
    dprintf( "some format string: %s %d\n", s, n );
gets translated to:

Which is in essence an zero iteration loop of an empty statement. Your
compiler must be pretty dump if it generates any code for this. Alternatives
are replacing by nothing, semi-colon becomes empty statement or curly-braces
({}) that become an empty basic block.
