Hi Bruce, Neil,

We had this patch in our internal tree that was intended to fix  -Wimplicit-fallthrough related error due to Host and Target GCC mismatch.
But I just verified both combination of GCC in Make and Meson seems like it has already been addressed somewhere down the line.
So, I'm dropping the patch.
