             Bug #: 11642
           Summary: -fvisibility-inlines-hidden should not hide explicit
           Product: clang
           Version: trunk
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P
         Component: LLVM Codegen

preprocessed testcase for a.cc

Clang with -fvisibility-inlines-hidden generates a hidden definition for
explicitly instantiated inlines.

Now think of the following scenario:
a.h defines class Foo.
a.cc has the instantiation for Foo<int>
b.cc uses Foo<int>

Now we build a shared library from a.cc, Foo::foo is not exported. When b.cc is
compiled it won't include a definition for Foo::foo and linking against the
shared library will cause a linker error.
