           Summary: Doesn't allow incomplete type in member access
           Product: clang
           Version: trunk
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P
         Component: Frontend
        AssignedTo: unassignedclangbugs at nondot.org
        ReportedBy: schaub.johannes at googlemail.com
                CC: llvmbugs at cs.uiuc.edu

Clang does not conform to the C Standard, it appears (GCC doesn't either):

struct A {
  int a;
  int x : (sizeof ((struct A*)0)->a * 8);

C doesn't forbid the left operand to be a pointer to incomplete type. The only
requirement it has is that it's a pointer to a structure type, and that the
right operand shall name a member of that structure. Both conditions are
satisfied (C99: and 6.2.1p7).
