            Bug ID: 40020
           Summary: Illegitimate warning for -Wfloat-conversion
           Product: clang
           Version: 7.0
          Hardware: PC
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P
         Component: -New Bugs
          Assignee: unassignedclangbugs at nondot.org

When compiling  the C snippet below with -Wconversion, clangs throws the
warning -Wfloat-conversion for (i) expression `x = y', and (ii) for expression
`0 || y'. 

int f()
    int x;
    double y;
    x = y;
    0 || y;
    return 0;

My interpretation is that the warning for (ii) is not legitimate and should be
removed. As opposed to[floating point conversion], where truncation is
defined upon a conversion (e.g., as in an assignment), section 6.5.14 only
relates to the notion of comparison. In particular, it is relevant whether an
operand compare to 0 (the same of a integral of floating point), given the
logical OR only requires that its operands are of scalar type.

GCC 7.3 only produces the warning for case (i), which is according to my
expectation, as described above.
