I suggest you ...

add a "ignore keyword" option/list for quick diff/merge compiler adaption without a full parser

think of a C compiler for an embedded target that has some special keywords that lead to parsing errors

    I personally would imagine this as kind of preprocessor.

    You could list set of #defines and before semantic parse all defines would be replaced.

    Imagine following example:

    interrupt void int_handler(void);

    To "semantic_c.conf" you could put:
    #define interrupt

    Than the code seen by semantic parser will look like:
    void int_handler(void);

    Other example:
    FUNC(void, AUTOMATIC) foo( VAR(uint8, AUTOMATIC) bar);

    put to semantic_c.conf:
    #define FUNC(rettype, memclass) rettype
    #define VAR(type, memclass) type

    And voila:
    final code will be seen as:
    void foo( uint8 bar);
