            Bug ID: 19556
           Summary: GCC extension rejected in C++ mode
           Product: clang
           Version: trunk
          Hardware: PC
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P
         Component: C++

Here's some evil code from glibc's mathinline.h.

$ cat evil.cc
int foo(double __x) {
  return (__extension__
          (((((union { double __d; int __i[2]; }) {__d: __x}).__i[1]))));

$ clang evil.cc
evil.cc:3:17: error: '(anonymous union at evil.cc:3:17)' cannot be defined in a
type specifier
           (((((union { double __d; int __i[2]; }) {__d: __x}).__i[1]))));
evil.cc:3:53: warning: use of GNU old-style field designator extension
           (((((union { double __d; int __i[2]; }) {__d: __x}).__i[1]))));
                                                    .__d = 
evil.cc:3:63: error: member reference base type 'void' is not a structure or
           (((((union { double __d; int __i[2]; }) {__d: __x}).__i[1]))));
1 warning and 2 errors generated.

We accept this beast in C mode, but reject it as C++. GCC accepts it in C++
code too.
