I fixed the llvm-gcc bugs.

I closed one clang bug as a dup of the other.  I fixed many minor  
clang bugs in various subsystems exposed by this, thanks!

Unfortunately, I don't have time at the moment to fix the rest of the  
issues.  Here is what is left:

1) Sema::MergeFunctionDecl needs to allow a prototype after a  
function body.

2) GCC anonymous unions parse bug don't allow field access when you  
use P->b.

3) We have a minor sema bug related to struct assignment and cv  
qualifiers, I asked Steve to investigate:

If anyone is interested in tackling #1 or #2, they are both self- 
contained and would be a great way to dive into clang.

Thanks Edvin!
