This makes sense, but it should come for free. There's never any point
in issuing a warning about not using the advertised calling convention
from inside the function itself. Similarly, we shouldn't issue
warnings about calls to obsolete functions from bodies of functions
that are themselves obsolete.

https://debbugs.gnu.org/4837 "with-fewer-warnings ?" talks about
adding something even more focused than with-no-warnings.
