I would not expect any negative side effects.

I assume the C99 setting was once done because C89 is not enough.

Since gcc 5, gcc does default to C11 instead of C89.
This was a pretty painless change since there are no real 
(The C++ default change in gcc 6 is/was more problematic.)

If the code needs >= C99, then the default of C11 should
work just fine.
