Strange considering that we have this attribute printed in some error messages of some Sema tests. If I compile this code without your patch:
typedef int __attribute__((address_space(1))) int_1;
typedef int __attribute__((address_space(2))) int_2;

void f0(int_1 &); 
void f0(const int_1 &);

void test_f0() {
  int i;
  static int_2 i2;

I get the address spaces printed correctly inside the type:
  note: candidate function not viable: 1st argument ('int_2' (aka '__attribute__((address_space(2))) int')) is in address space 2, but parameter must be in address space 1

Perhaps @yaxunl could comment further on whether this change is needed.
