            Bug ID: 38105
           Summary: LTO builds fail when dllimport functions are called
           Product: new-bugs
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW

When a function is declared dllimport but called directly (i.e. in the same
binary), a non-LTO build will issue a warning but still succeed (same as MSVC).
LTO and ThinLTO builds fail with linkage complaints.

This is preventing Firefox's use of LTO on Windows:

clang version 7.0.0 (trunk 336407)

$ cat a.cpp
__declspec(dllimport) int foo();
int main() { return foo(); }

$ cat b.cpp
int foo() { return 42; }

$ cat test.sh
rm -rf *.obj *.exe
clang-cl $FLAG -O2 -c a.cpp b.cpp
lld-link -nodefaultlib -entry:main a.obj b.obj

$ ./test.sh
lld-link.exe: warning: a.obj: locally defined symbol imported: ?foo@@YAHXZ
(defined in b.obj) [LNK4217]

$ FLAG=-flto ./test.sh
Global is external, but doesn't have external or weak linkage!
i32 ()* @"?foo@@YAHXZ"
LLVM ERROR: Broken module found, compilation aborted!

$ FLAG=-flto=thin ./test.sh
lld-link.exe: error: undefined symbol: ?foo@@YAHXZ
>>> referenced by lto.tmp:(main)
