            Bug ID: 16137
           Summary: accepts invalid?
           Product: clang
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P
         Component: C++11
          Assignee: unassignedclangbugs at nondot.org

    Classification: Unclassified

clang will accept

void *g() {
  struct S {
  extern S bax();
  return reinterpret_cast<void*>(bax);

Reading the standard suggests we might be pedantically correct since

The name of a function declared in block scope .... no matching entity is
found, the block scope entity receives external linkage.

The type is not even considered. There is no way the above program could work,
so IMHO this should be a DR, but at the very least we should produce a warning.

gcc -std=c++11 says

error: ā€˜g()::S bax()ā€™, declared using local type ā€˜g()::Sā€™, is used but never
