            Bug ID: 18047
           Summary: Failure to deduce std::initializer_list<T> from
                    {"foo","bar"} when T is a parameter pack
           Product: clang
           Version: trunk
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW

          Priority: P
         Component: C++11

Test case.

This program is compiled correctly:

#include <initializer_list>

template <typename T>
void function(std::initializer_list<T>) {

int main() {
    function({"foo", "bar"});

This program fails to compile:

#include <initializer_list>

template <typename... T>
void function(std::initializer_list<T>...) {

int main() {
    function({"foo", "bar"});

instead reporting a compile error:

main.cpp:8:5: error: no matching function for call to 'function'
    function({"foo", "bar"});
main.cpp:4:6: note: candidate function [with T = <char const[4]>] not viable:
no known conversion from 'const char [4]' to 'char const[4]' for 1st argument
void function(std::initializer_list<T>...) {
1 error generated.

It appears that the compiler is failing to perform the array-to-pointer
conversion step of the deduction per [temp.deduct.call]/2, but only when the
type being deduced is part of a parameter pack.
