Often for C++, FileCheck tests over IR fail to match because of the
slightly different C++ ABI rules (among other things, constructors
have a slightly different signature).  Often it's easy to fix the
tests to work on all platforms; if it's straightforward, please do,
otherwise specifying a triple is fine.

Err, is that why it isn't matching?  I would have assumed that the
'void' isn't matching rather than the linkonce_odr.

Moving the test to CodeGenCXX is independent of that, but that would
be okay, I guess.

Yes... that's just a bug in the test; I didn't realize some platforms
define wchar_t as 'long'.  Probably just specifying a triple is the
right thing to do here.

Yes, please file; that's a bit mysterious.
