Ok, that's good. I see that on clang-9, the documentation also
mentions that -Wformat control -Wformat-extra-args -Wformat-invalid-specifier
-Wformat-y2k -Wformat-zero-length -Wnonnull and -Wformat-security.
We can probably turn these all on, regardless. The only warning
that produces output here is -Wformat-security, and only in a couple of
files (number of warnings per file from a few hundred randconfig builds):
