This is what I'm doing.

clang++ -cc1 -I/home/kevg/Desktop/llvm_playground/llvm/include -ast-dump llvm_playground/llvm/lib/Support/SmallVector.cpp

And this is how SmallVector::grow_pod looks like.

There is no first 'if' at all, last line is absent too.

Some nodes disappeared.

I'm writing a clang-based tool and when I try to use RecursiveASTVisitor on that declaration it can't find those absent nodes too.

Is this a bug or some kind of strange behaviour?
