The one thing that comes to mind is the named struct initialization
(don't know the proper term), which looks like

struct foo f = { .init = &func_init, .shutdown = &func_shutdown };

and so on. To be honest, I don't even remember if that's ISO C or just
a gcc extension, but it's the only thing I've noticed lately.

(I suppose other stuff such as not recognizing class as a keyword is
also a problem in theory, but I haven't encountered it in practice.
Most C code tends to fall into the intersection of C and C++
