Clang has a pedagogical approach, intended to make it easy for newbies which have not bothered learning C/C++, and breaks the rule to not issue diagnostics for perfectly legal code unless called for. To avoid such diagnostics, I have added lines like
#pragma clang diagnostic ignored "-Wlogical-op-parentheses"
#pragma clang diagnostic ignored "-Wdangling-else"

For your case, you might add
#pragma clang diagnostic ignored "-Wkeyword-macro"
