Right, just to close this: I was still unsure which of the cmdline
options would cause it and bisected the kernel (big fat box can build
allmodconfigs in no time :)).

The single change which fixes the whole build is

---
diff --git a/Makefile b/Makefile
index 8c7de9a72ea2..3582089cfeb6 100644
--- a/Makefile
+++ b/Makefile

with that

gcc (SUSE Linux) 7.4.1 20190905 [gcc-7-branch revision 275407]

but as we saw, only -std=gnu11 alone doesn't cause it:

$ gcc -std=gnu11 -o switch.o switch.c
$

And so we had the -fsanitize=shift already enabled since 2020 in the
kernel build and the gnu11 change then triggered the undefined behavior
due to the -fsanitize instrumentation as it was already explained:

$ gcc -std=gnu11 -fsanitize=shift -o switch.o switch.c
switch.c: In function ‘foo’:
switch.c:10:7: error: case label does not reduce to an integer constant
       case (((0xfc08) << 16) | (0x0101)):;
       ^~~~

Ok, now I can sleep at night again.
