[cfe-commits] PATCH: Fix crash bug due to missing array to pointer decay when rebuilding member expression in templates

A project we use has lines similar to this:
struct mystruct {
  int member;
typedef mystruct sometype_t[1];

Which we then use with:
sometype_t my_instance;

This works just fine until templates are involved.  The first pass works
fine, but when rebuilding the expression when instantiating the template,
this doesn't perform an array to pointer decay, and this crashes when it
sees an expression that IsArrow but isn't a pointer.  The attached patch
causes this conversion to happen, and provides a test case.

This is my first time in this code, so I'd appreciate someone who knows more
about the memory management to take a look.  I'm also curious if this
shouldn't instead call Sema::LookupMemberExpr (which calls
DefaultFunctionArrayConversion for us, amongst many other things that didn't
seem correct to perform here) or Sema::DefaultFunctionArrayLvalueConversion
(which also didn't seem to apply based on my reading), so getting another
set of eyes on that would be nice too.

Example crash (when run on my test case in the attached patch):
