[cfe-dev] Confusing diagnostic for initializing array with array

int test() {
int a[10];
int b[10] = a;

gives the following error:
error: incompatible type initializing 'int [10]', expected 'int [10]'

which is completely confusing.  This code obviously isn't legal, but
reason has nothing to do with the type of the initializer.

Not sure what the best wording for this error is, though.
