I think it depends on what the compiler does with unknown -W flags.
In the configure test you created, there are 2 possible reasons
why the TRY_COMPILE can fail

 - Using GCC with a broken -Wlogical-op impl
 - Compiler which doesn't understand -Wlogical-op at all and treats
   this is a fatal error

I think the solution here is to move the check into
virt-compiler-warnings.m4 and only look for a broken
GCC, if we have already validated that '-Wlogical-op'
is supported by the compiler
