the man says that most options (I thing there is details about which
ones do) have a "no-" variants, and IIRC that only the non-default is
listed. AFAIK -fshow-column is the default since GGC 4.5, maybe you have
checked a doc for GCC >= 4.5?

Well, when a macro is used and it's the expanded code that triggers the
warning, yes the line is the one at which the macro is used without
further details on where in the expanded macro the problem is.
