Backport token-split-by-macro fix?
Message ID:
Hi all,

	New clang versions (e.g., 13.0.0) cause a torrent of warnings with current production Perl releases.

	These warnings make maintenance of XS modules a challenge--since whatever errors the compiler may have thrown are interwoven amidst maybe thousands of these warnings. I’ve been working around the issue by prefixing a #pragma onto my .xs files, but I had to paw around for a bit to find that. Others may not have that patience, and it also comes at the cost of now having a warning when gcc, not clang, does the compilation.

	A recent GitHub issue ( appears to have addressed this in blead. Would a backport of this fix to current production releases be possible?

	Thank you!
