            Bug ID: 16766
           Summary: clang with -fms-extensions should treat __inline in C
                    as it treats inline in C++
           Product: clang
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P
         Component: Frontend
          Assignee: unassignedclangbugs at nondot.org

    Classification: Unclassified

The MSDN docs spell this out:

"The inline keyword is available only in C++. The __inline and __forceinline
keywords are available in both C and C++."
"The __inline keyword is equivalent to inline."

In particular, this code similar to some in winnt.h will cause multiple
definition link errors:
int foo(int);
__inline int foo(int x) { return x; }

Clang will emit a strong definition for foo instead of a weak or linkonce

This prevents clang from compiling and linking multiple C files that include

I don't think this will break people following C99 inline rules, but it will
cause them to start emitting more linkonce code.
