[cfe-dev] Writing a fix-it for errors already found by clang

does clang itself emit a fix-it hint? As it does for some errors
already, you could try to add this to the clang frontend itself instead
of a separate clang-tidy check.
clang-tidy checks don't have information of other diagnostics from Sema
or other checks, each check is independent in that sense. They use the
AST as information.
When there are errors in the original source-code, the corresponding
AST-Nodes could be removed to recover from these errors. This makes it
complicated to write
a reliable clang-tidy check (if not impossible).
Does 'clang-check -ast-dump file.cpp' contain the offending nodes?
