[Libguestfs] -Woverlength-strings / assert unhelpful interaction

$ gcc -O2 -c -Woverlength-strings stupid.c 
stupid.c: In function ‘insert_lf_record’:
stupid.c:22: warning: string length ‘7394’ is greater than the length ‘509’ ISO C90 compilers are required to support

Without -O2 the error message goes away.

Even ISO C99 compilers don't help - they raise the limit to a mere
4095 bytes.
