I think this is the right approach. Technically, the patch looks good, but there are some stylistic things that need adjustment before it can go in.

+static bool ResolveAndFixSingleFunctionTemplateSpecialization(Sema &Self
+  , Expr *&SrcExpr
+  , bool DoFunctionPointerConverion = false
+  , bool Complain = false
+  , const SourceRange& OpRangeForComplaining = SourceRange()
+  , QualType DestTypeForComplaining = QualType()
+  , unsigned DiagIDForComplaining = 0
+  );

Commas at the end of the lines, please, and we tend to right-justify parameters. Same comment about various argument lists throughout the patch; please take a look at http://llvm.org/docs/CodingStandards.html .

More importantly, Clang functions typically return "true" on failure and false on success, and this function goes against that convention. How about changing SrcExpr to just be an Expr*, and returning an ExprResult?
