           Summary: operator overloading for enums is ambiguous
           Product: clang
           Version: trunk
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P
         Component: C++
        AssignedTo: unassignedclangbugs at nondot.org
        ReportedBy: pip88nl at gmail.com
                CC: llvmbugs at cs.uiuc.edu, dgregor at apple.com

Clang rejects the following code:

enum E {

bool operator >= (E, E) {
  return 0;

int main () {
  E a = one, b = one;
  a >= b; // ambiguous here
// END

with an ambiguity error. This is true for revision 112476 and release 2.7.

According to the C++ standard 13.6.1:  If there is a user-written candidate
withthe same name and parameter types as a built-in candidate operator
function, the built-in operator function is hidden and is not included in the
set of candidate functions.
