Out of curiosity I also recompiled petsc with this flag and lo and behold the src is littered with shadowed variables. From what I can tell most are likely harmless — defining an iterator variable in the beginning of the function with all the rest of the variables, then redefining it later in some loop — but maybe we should consider adding this as a CI flag as it isn’t activated by -Wall.
