[cfe-dev] Annotations on extern

is there anything similar to __attribute__((annotate("foo"))) that works on
declarations (and their parameters) instead of definitions?
I am trying to get Clang to pass an annotation such as
extern void foo(int *a __attribute__((annotate("foo"))) , int *b)
or, if the above isnt possible, an annotation on the entire function
extern void foo(int *a , int *b) __attribute__((annotate("foo")))
down to the LLVM IR in any way. At the moment, this is for a prototype and
I would like to have a quick and dirty way that I can iterate on -- so
ideally something string-based.
Is there a solution I have missed, or should I roll my own attribute. If
so, what would the cleanest way of emitting this in the IR be -- perhaps
weak symbols in the LLVM IR?
