            Bug ID: 26109
           Summary: is_same<const const char*, const char*>::value ==
           Product: libc++
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P

I'm using libc++ from the trusty/universe repo:

is_same is used by unordered_map in a static assert to check that the
allocator::value_type is the same as the map value_type. The problem is the map
defines value_type as pair<const Key, Value>. If Key was already a const type
(const char *) in this case, somehow it gets double const qualified and is_same
fails. If however, I make a typedef of const char* as CString and then define
the allocator type as pair<const CString, Value> the is_same check passes.

This seems like a bug to me, double const qualifiers should be ignored by
is_same, right? I'm not sure what other compilers do.

I hope I reported the bug in the right place, it could well be clang issue.
