           Summary: -Wshift-overflow should show the shift result in hex
           Product: clang
           Version: trunk
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P
         Component: Frontend
        AssignedTo: unassignedclangbugs at nondot.org

-Wshift-overflow is awesome.  There's room for improving its message though. 

       foo.cc:2908:58: error: shift result (36893488143124135936) requires 66
bits to represent, but 'long long' only has 64 bits [-Werror,-Wshift-overflow]

Knowing the value in decimal isn't very helpful here.  Since 'shift' means
'multiply/divide by power of 2', we should print the shift result in hex such
that the user can easily see what the bits are.
