It is not accurate, kernel uses gnu89 dialect, which is C90 with some
C99 features [1]. In our case, we rely on GCC extension {} that doesn't
contradict standart [2] and fills holes with zeros too.

[1] Makefile:500
   496 KBUILD_CFLAGS   := -Wall -Wundef -Werror=strict-prototypes -Wno-trigraphs \
   497                    -fno-strict-aliasing -fno-common -fshort-wchar -fno-PIE \
   498                    -Werror=implicit-function-declaration -Werror=implicit-int \
   499                    -Wno-format-security \
   500                    -std=gnu89

[2] From GCC:
https://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gcc/C-Dialect-Options.html
"When a base standard is specified, the compiler accepts all programs
following that standard plus those using GNU extensions that do not
contradict it."
