            Bug ID: 17410
           Summary: Allow reinterpret_cast in constant expression when
                    -fms-compatibility is enabled
           Product: new-bugs
           Version: trunk
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P
         Component: new bugs
          Assignee: unassignedbugs at nondot.org
          Reporter: p_hampson at wargaming.net

Currently Clang cannot use the DIJOFS_nnn and similar CPP macros as case labels
as they evaluate to: FIELD_OFFSET(DIJOYSTATE, nnn) which is defined in winnt.h

#define FIELD_OFFSET(type, field)    ((LONG)(LONG_PTR)&(((type *)0)->field))

Clang rejects them with:
error : case value is not a constant expression
note: expanded from macro 'FIELD_OFFSET'
note: cast that performs the conversions of a reinterpret_cast is not allowed
in a constant expression

MinGW's w32api package bounced off the same issue, and resolved it by changing
their definition of FIELD_OFFSET to use offsetof, but that's not a great option
for the upstream headers.
