            Bug ID: 37746
           Summary: ObjCIvarDecl::getParent is not valid
           Product: clang
           Version: 6.0
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P
         Component: -New Bugs
          Assignee: unassignedclangbugs at nondot.org
          Reporter: mh+llvm at glandium.org

I'm not sure how this worked in clang 5, but we have a clang plugin for
https://searchfox.org/ that gets data during compilation, and that does this:


} else if (const FieldDecl *D2 = dyn_cast<FieldDecl>(Decl)) {
      const RecordDecl *Record = D2->getParent();
      return std::string("F_<") + getMangledName(Ctx, Record) + ">_" +

This crashes in getMangledName() because Record is not a valid object. The
problem being that we reach here with a ObjCIvarDecl, which inherits FieldDecl,
so the dyn_cast is valid. But the DeclContext for ObjCIvarDecl is a
ObjCContainerDecl (per ObjCIvarDecl::Create), which doesn't inherit RecordDecl.
Maybe things somehow aligned by chance in 5.0, but they blow up in 6.0.
