C11 is a published standard. Last I checked, gcc did not follow many of the above rules. It looks like major changes were recently merged into the gcc trunk, and I haven't had a chance to test those, so it may well be fixed.

The bitfield changes didn't make it into gcc-4.7; we're still working
through implementation details. GCC's bitfield support is a horrid
nasty mess which has made implementation of the standard problematical.
It's on Aldy's plate for gcc-4.8.
