Yes, it causes the umem freebsd port to fail with clang. The offending  
code is available at

Some thoughts from #freebsd-clang:

<Ed> well, as we can see, it's part of real code
<Ed> and in some cases the compiler doesn't support noreturn
<Ed> and in that case the compiler will throw warnings about missing  
return statements
<Ed> so in my opinion it makes sense to place return statements there
