Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

When setting compiler option for GNUARM we see a build error

-Werror=type-limits

This flag can be set in Commonconfig.cmake, example

set (COMMON_COMPILE_FLAGS -Werror=type-limits -fshort-enums -fshort-wchar -funsigned-char -msoft-float ${CMSE_FLAGS} -ffunction-sections -fdata-sections --specs=nano.specs)
