Re: NetworkManager C99 compiler requirement for 0.9.10 (and therefore 0.9.9)

Hi all,

I would like to do *occasional* C99-style declarations in the code to avoid ugly hacks when using 
conditionally built code. That means bumping up the compiler requirements to the C99 standard. As we 
currently only target to GCC and possibly LLVM, I don't think it would be a problem.

I will modify the to require and use C99, if there are no objections on the list.

Given that NM is Linux-only, this seems fine to me; at this point, the
only real reason for sticking with C90 in the GNOME platform is to
support win32 (where MSVC does not and will not ever support C99); it
seems unlikely that in 2013 there is any other platform where NM could
even theoretically be built where there is a defensible reason to use a
non-C99 compiler.

You may need to specify --std=gnu99 rather than c99 to avoid warnings
about gcc extensions though.
