This is an unfortunate instance where the __has_attribute check does
not function usefully.  Gcc does have the attribute, but for gcc it only
applies to functions, not variables, and trying to apply it to a
variable generates Wattribute.  So far we only apply the attribute to
variables.  Only enable the attribute for clang, for now.
