           Summary: poor error recovery for incorrect typename
           Product: clang
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: quality-of-implementation
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: parser
        AssignedTo: unassignedclangbugs at nondot.org

                CC: llvmbugs at cs.uiuc.edu

int foo(bar_t x) {
  return x+x;

in C mode, the parser thinks this might be a K&R identifier list and gets

t.c:2:15: error: expected ')'
int foo(bar_t x) {
t.c:2:8: note: to match this '('
int foo(bar_t x) {
t.c:3:10: error: use of undeclared identifier 'x'
  return x+x;

In C++ mode, we also don't recognize that it is a mistaken typename, but it
looks different somehow:

$ clang -xc++ t.c
t.c:2:9: error: use of undeclared identifier 'bar_t'
int foo(bar_t x) {
t.c:2:17: error: invalid token after top level declarator
int foo(bar_t x) {
