            Bug ID: 38300
           Summary: Wrong exception deduction for some forms of placement
           Product: clang
           Version: trunk
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P
         Component: C++
          Assignee: unassignedclangbugs at nondot.org

clang version 7.0.0 (trunk 337118) rejects the following program:

#include <new>

int n;

static_assert(!noexcept(::new (std::nothrow) int[n]), "");

Further the following program aborts even though it shouldn't:

#include <new>

extern "C" void abort();

void test_too_small(int n) {
 new (std::nothrow) int[n]{1,2,3,4};

int main()
  bool f = false;
  try {
  } catch (...) {
    f = true;
  if (!f)

Rationale: According to [expr.new] p7:

"[..] if the new-initializer is a bracedinit-list for which the number of
initializer-clauses exceeds the number of elements to initialize, no storage
is obtained and the new-expression terminates by throwing an exception of a
type that would match a handler (15.3) of type std::bad_array_new_length

I tried g++. It accept both code samples, and the second code sample does not
