             Bug #: 11320
           Summary: sync builtins parameter type matching fails
           Product: clang
           Version: trunk
          Platform: PC

Preprocessed source triggering bug.

We have a use of the sync builtins that attempts to:

__sync_bool_compare_and_swap(volatile uint32_t*, uint32_t, uint32_t)

on a 64-bit platform, but clang++ complains that it can't coerce the first
parameter to volatile int*. I'm certain that the types all match. I've included
a preprocessed source file that illustrates the problem (a number of different

Note that simple test cases do not fail---there's something about our
particular use that is triggering the problem.

Reproduce with the attachment:

clang++ -Wall -m64 -c byeau.cpp -o /dev/null

The source comes from my attempt to compile rstm.googlecode.com with clang++.
The entire package compiles fine with gcc, including the current gcc-4.6.1.
