Unfortunately, none of the branches prior to release/14.x are going to
see any more updates (at least as far as I am aware, as the LLVM
community only supports one release branch at a time) but as Arnd
mentioned below, I do not really see that as a problem, as newer
versions of clang and GCC will catch these warnings.

Right. Based on the upstream LLVM bug, I think we should just fix
arm_neon.h to avoid triggering -Wdeclaration-after-statement to have
something that is (hopefully) relatively low risk for a clang-14
backport, rather than addressing the root cause of clang warning in
system macros, as it sounds like fixing that has some risks that are not
fully understood at this point. The kernel only uses very specific
system headers after commit 04e85bbf71c9 ("isystem: delete global
-isystem compile option"), so I don't think that my suggested approach
will have many downsides.

I think I see how to potentially fix arm_neon.h in
clang/utils/TableGen/NeonEmitter.cpp, I just have to think about it a
little more.

Realistically, I don't think special casing this in lib/raid6 is the end
of the world:
