Didn't you start this thread by pointing out that SuSE has a gcc 3.3.4
which isn't? I would call that a compiler which lies about its version, and
for the purposes of this argument, I would say that it is not a sane

Given this, your original (correct) claim was that my patch would not help
such compilers. Are you now claiming that it does help such compilers, and
no one else?
