            Bug ID: 19398
           Summary: Implement vector deleting destructors
           Product: clang
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P
         Component: LLVM Codegen

MSVC supports an extension that allows users to delete an array of polymorphic
objects where the dynamic type doesn't match the static type of the array.

Here's an example of MSVC doing this where we can't:

$ cat t.cpp
extern "C" int printf(const char *, ...);
struct A {
  A() : a(42) {}
  virtual ~A() { printf("a: %d\n", a); }
  int a;
struct B : A {
  B() : b(13) {}
  ~B() { printf("b: %d\n", b); }
  int b;
void foo(A *a) { delete[] a; }
int main() {
  B *b = new B[2];

$ cl -nologo t.cpp && ./t.exe
b: 13
a: 42
b: 13
a: 42

$ clang-cl t.cpp && ./t.exe
a: 16699704
a: 42

They use "vector deleting destructors" to do this special array deletion, and
those are what go in the vftable.  We currently put the scalar deleting dtor
there instead.
