Unfortunately not standard until c99   but been part of GCC forever.

But not necessarily a part of various vendor compilers forever, and people *do* use vendor compilers on UN*X to compile Wireshark (Sun C, HP's C compiler, and IBM's xlc, to name three that, as I remember, are used to compile Wireshark).
