             Bug #: 14968
           Summary: -Wunused-value should not warn about unused constant
                    expanded from a macro
           Product: clang
           Version: 3.2
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P
         Component: Frontend
        AssignedTo: unassignedclangbugs at nondot.org
        ReportedBy: john at keeping.me.uk
                CC: llvmbugs at cs.uiuc.edu
    Classification: Unclassified

In Git's source code, the following pattern is used to "Let callers be aware of
the constant return value; this can help gcc with -Wuninitialized analysis.":

int foo(int a);
#define foo(a)    (foo(a), 1);

void bar(int a) {

With clang, this causes warnings of the form:

test.c:5:3: warning: expression result unused [-Wunused-value]
test.c:2:28: note: expanded from macro 'foo'
#define foo(a)    (foo(a), 1);

This seems similar to bug 13747, so is this considered to be a bug in clang or
is it a case of "don't do that"?
