  I suspected that. I saw your change only after I pushed this, I will add the includes.

  Switch statements are definitely weird <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duff%27s_device>, so I guess these warnings can be understood as enforcing a stricter (and more sensible) syntax.

I didn't see it with Clang. Clang doesn't support fallthrough comments like GCC <https://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gcc/Warning-Options.html> does, and the standard `[[fallthrough]]` attribute is only available with C++17, maybe that's why it's not on by default.
