            Bug ID: 39925
           Summary: struct definition leaks out of function prototype
           Product: clang
           Version: trunk
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P
         Component: -New Bugs
          Assignee: unassignedclangbugs at nondot.org

The following C11 program (prog.c) should compile without error:

  struct T;

  void f(
    struct S {
      struct T {
        int a;
      } *b;

  struct T {
    int c;

  int main()

When I compile it with  clang prog.c -std=c11 -pedantic-errors "-w"  i get the
following unexpected error:

  error: redefinition of 'T'

This is wrong since the struct definition inside the function declaration has
function prototype scope and therefore should be independent of the struct
definition in the file scope.

Note that gcc does not give any errors.
