I would like to use helm-imenu to see and navigate on a list of errors/warnings in compilation buffer. How can I do that? E.g., by setting imenu-generic-expression to some value?

You'll be better off setting imenu-create-index-function I think, so instead of repeating the regexps, you can directly use the matching already performed by compile.el. The necessary function would logically fit into compile.el, so you may want to submit it for inclusion into Emacs when you're done.
