I wouldn't actually be too surprised if full C99 support were possible on the JVM (with a suitable library, of course). There are some limits on, for example, what you're allowed to do on pointers as integers and turn them back to pointers successfully. It would probably actually be possible to make a conforming implementation of C with type checking, garbage collection, etc., and it might be possible to use the JVM's services to do it.
