The specification of C++11 inheriting constructors doesn't seem to 
handle C-style variadic functions, so we just drop the ... when 
declaring the constructor in the derived class.  This patch adds a 
warning about that, on by default.

Tested x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, applying to trunk.

    	* c.opt (Winherited-variadic-ctor): New.
    	* class.c (one_inherited_ctor): Warn about variadic inherited ctor.
