I don't think there is a general flag that does this.

The only case where warnings cause the build to fail that I know about
is in the network area, which can be worked around by setting
SCTP_WERROR to empty:

make SCTP_WERROR="" all

But depending on the version of the compiler, you may get more warnings.
I suspect patching the makefiles may be your only option at that point.
