           Summary: bogus Diagnostic for static const functions
           Product: clang
           Version: trunk
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P
         Component: C++
        AssignedTo: unassignedclangbugs at nondot.org
        ReportedBy: bugzilla-clang at sogetthis.com
                CC: llvmbugs at cs.uiuc.edu, dgregor at apple.com

When it encounters a const static function Clang will not only report this but
also a 'conflicting types' error that actually does not exist in the source. It
looks like Clang just ignores the 'const' in the declaration which then leads
to inconsistency with the definition. (Hope I did not mix up declaration and


$ cat test.cpp 
class Foo {
  static void bar() const;
void Foo::bar() const {}

$ clang++ test.cpp 
test.cpp:2:15: error: type qualifier is not allowed on this function
  static void bar() const;
test.cpp:5:11: error: conflicting types for 'bar'
void Foo::bar() const {}
test.cpp:2:15: note: previous declaration is here
  static void bar() const;
2 errors generated.
