Nested function declarations, not that I ever seen it used.
Inline asembler, but then portability is gone anyway.
And then I have seen code depending on some undefined behaviour, which
not really goes as an extension. This is just crappy coding
practice and not the fault of the compiler. (Who wants to make a
compiler which really gave you random results when the standard says
that the behaviour is undefined. Well of course if undef is a value in
0) Yes, the kernel uses it.
