            Bug ID: 27566
           Summary: shared_ptr of function type
           Product: libc++
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P
         Component: All Bugs
          Assignee: unassignedclangbugs at nondot.org

The following snippet triggers a compilation error:

    #include <memory>

    struct Foo {};
    using FooFn = Foo ();
    using FooFnPtr = Foo (*)();
    using FooDel = void (*)(FooFnPtr);
    static_assert(std::is_same<FooFn*, FooFnPtr>::value, "");

    void del(FooFnPtr) {}
    Foo fun() { return {}; }

    int main() {
        std::shared_ptr<FooFn>(&fun, &del);

The error happens when `std::shared_ptr<Foo ()>` attempts to instantiate
`std::allocator<Foo ()>` in a constructor that does not need that allocator:

>     ^

The original use case leverages `std::shared_ptr` to bundle a dynamically
loaded function together with a deleter that unloads the dynamic library when
the function is no longer referenced. It is unclear whether this use case is
supported, but I did not spot anything in the standard that would forbid it.
