I think it can be done, but you'll need to disable exception handling
and RTTI.  You won't be able to use any C++ libraries.  The build system
will need to be changed to call C++ compiler when needed.

Still, I think it would be an overkill.  C is quite good for large
projects if used properly.  Linux is fine with C.  C also has checkers
such as sparse, but I'm not aware of C++ equivalents.
