The grammar says

		( parameter-declaration-clause ) attribute-specifier-seq[opt] cv-qualifier-seq[opt]
		ref-qualifier[opt] exception-specification[opt]

so nothing can come between the 'const' and 'volatile' except perhaps some whitespace and macro expansions that expand to nothing (neither of which we care about).

One other comment:

+                case Qualifiers::Const | Qualifiers::Volatile: {
+                    SourceLocation CLoc = Chunk.Fun.getConstQualifierLoc();
+                    SourceLocation VLoc = Chunk.Fun.getVolatileQualifierLoc();
+                    Range =
+                        SourceRange(std::min(CLoc, VLoc), std::max(CLoc, VLoc));
+                  }
+                  break;

The "min()" here doesn't actually do the right thing. You'll need to use SourceManager::isBeforeInTranslationUnit(). 

Otherwise, your patch is looking good, once it has a test case.
