           Summary: no lines for empty case statement
           Product: clang
           Version: trunk
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P
         Component: -New Bugs
        AssignedTo: unassignedclangbugs at nondot.org

Consider this small C program:

  #include <stdlib.h>

  int main(int argc, char**argv) {
    int x = atoi(argv[1]);

    switch(x) {
      case 1:

    return 0;

When you build this and step through it with a debugger (pass "1" in argv[1]),
you'll find that you go straight from "switch(x) {" to "return 0;".

Fixing this is complicated because clang doesn't generate a distinct block in
LLVM IR for this, it's actually creating a switch with default block ->
%sw.epilog and i32 1 -> %sw.epilog.

(As a related issue, "case X:" and "default:" lines never get any debug info
associated with them either. I'm not sure whether that's intentional or not.)
