That's very interesting. Thanks for the pointers.
I'm using gcc version 9.1.1 20190605 (Red Hat 9.1.1-2)
and I saw this warning while compiling selftests,
but I don't see it with above warning.c example.
clang warns correctly in both cases.

That gcc bug has been opened since transition to ssa. That was a huge
transition for gcc. But I think the bug number is not correct. It points to a
different issue. I've checked -fdump-tree-uninit-all dump with and without
macro. They're identical. The tree-ssa-uninit pass suppose to warn, but it
doesn't. I wish I had more time to dig into it. A bit of debugging in
gcc/tree-ssa-uninit.c can probably uncover the root cause.
