           Summary: Cannot forward-declare static array
           Product: clang
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: Semantic Analyzer

Not sure if this is the right component.

gcc -fsyntax-only accepts the following, but clang does not:
static int array[];

Note that gcc also rejects this code with the -pedantic flag enabled.

Found in the ffmpeg source code.

On a side note, the error "variable has incomplete type 'int []'" is a bit
obscure.  It would be nice if the error actually gave a hint as to why this is
an error.
