In here int is a tentative definition (C code).

It was also first noticed when building glibc, so it is both support
by gcc and used in at least one location.

I can add an error/warning for now. To be clear, you want to error/warn on

int pr22217_foo;
extern int pr22217_foo __asm__("pr22217_bar");

Even when pr22217_foo is not used in between the two lines?
