Right, that code only checks for the name starting with __vector:

      if (strncmp (attr, "interrupt", strlen ("interrupt")) == 0)
          if (strncmp (func_name, "__vector", strlen ("__vector")) != 0)

It is unconditionally generated, rather than controlled by an option
(thas's the first argument 0 to warning() above).

Obviously not.  It would have to be added as a regular option then.
This option then also needs to be described.

I've got no idea about GCC's policy regarding adding target-specific
-W options: whether it's allowed at all, and if so, whether there
are specific restrictions to it.

OTOH, I wonder whether it should rather be turned off in a different
way, maybe by an additional attribute.  That way, one wouldn't have to
turn off the safety check globally, but the expansion of the
CLASS_IRQ() macro could instead just turn it off for the respective
instance.  So instead of tagging its vector name with


it could tag it e.g.

To eventually get this done, please start by writing a GCC bug
report for it.
