-W implies -Wsign-compare.  It seems that the Linux kernel doesn't use 
-W, but I do like most of the warnings it enables.  However, some of 
them are clearly obnoxious.

I suspect the right thing is to do:

-Wall -W -Wno-sign-compare -Wno-missing-field-initializers

... but I don't know for sure if the last of these is gcc-version-specific.
