Sadly, no.

GCC pragmas to manage warnings are almost useless. Its been broken for
years. See:

  * https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=53431
  * https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=66943

I even offered to start a bounty and pay a GCC dev to fix the "pragma
GCC diagnostic" gear (managing warnings are that important to me):
