It is not dead code, it's code that has no side effects. Are you sure clang
actually claims is "dead", that is, never executed? If so, it's clang bug.
Also, "//" comments are not OK in C code, which bjam is at present.
And generally, I'd prefer not to have executable code commented out, as it
sends mixed signals to readers. If clang really cannot be persuaded, you can
/* The vertex is either black, in which case we don't have to do anything,
a gray, in which case we have a loop. If we have a loop, it's not clear
that useful diagnostic we can emit. */
