We should probably fix this someday; if you don't plan to do it now, please file a PR.

This I don't understand. Each time we see a declaration, we can remove any qualifiers, no? As long as we do this before we check redeclarations there shouldn't be a problem AFAICT. Though we'd have to be careful about templates, which may cause the warning to be emitted more than once.

I think even without actually emitting a textual fixit, we should still remove the qualifier from the FunctionType and continue, so that we get sane compilation of the rest of the program.

Sounds good. Some notes on the patch itself: you have a missing close quote when citing the standard, and your patch has a number of whitespace-only changes that should be excluded (even though they're all removing trailing whitespace).

Would be nice if someone a little more familiar with SemaCXX could comment here as well.
