How can we check if these changes have any negative impact?

For embed-cdt, I have that open in my workspace, so for now nothing to worry about AFAICT. For other projects try building against pre-release of CDT, either from the repo or from CDT directly like

There are so many things which are technically API, but there are no known users of the API so keeping them going forward is just extra complication. That said there can be changes which are source code compatible that won't be binary compatible (such as a method the changes return type). So I try to keep an eye on that too.
