Reproduce source code

When a function contains a missing return value when a return type is specified
the program will contain undefined results. For the attached code I receive an
"Illegal instruction" when running the executable.

The ISO C++ standard 6.6.3 does state that, "Flowing off the end of a function
is equivalent to a return with no value; this results in undefined behavior in
a value-returning function." If this is the reason clang is generating code
then I would consider it resolved. However some more diagnostics might be more
helpful, instead of the seemingly benign warning of: "missing_return.cpp:2:1:
warning: control reaches end of non-void function"

Appears in Clang 3.2 and trunk, under Debug and Release for both 32 and 64-bit
generated code.
