            Bug ID: 40218
           Summary: clang-cl not handling comparison of function pointer
                    to that of its alternatename
           Product: clang
           Version: trunk
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT

          Priority: P
         Component: C++

Reproducing test case

Given the file repro.c (also attached):

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

typedef void (*LfiPtr)(int x);

void LfiDef(int x) {}

__pragma(comment(linker, "/alternatename:Lfi=LfiDef")) void Lfi(int x);

int main() {
  printf("void* Fun: %p, FunDef: %p\n", (void*) Lfi, (void*) LfiDef);
  if (Lfi == LfiDef) {
    return 0;
  return 1;

When I compile repro.c with clang-cl run it, I get this output:


> bin\clang-cl.exe repro.c -o clang-repro & clang-repro.exe
Lfi: 00007FF7D4A31000, LfiDef: 00007FF7D4A31000


This behavior seems incorrect to me. Lfi and LfiDef have the same value
(00007FF7D4A31000) according to the print statement and my understanding of
alternatename, but the comparison Lfi == LfiDef is false. It should be true.

cl.exe seems to produce the correct behavior though.
When I compile repro.c with cl and run the binary, I get this output:

Lfi: 00007FF728461000, LfiDef: 00007FF728461000


Back when I had a less minimal reproducer and the comparison was done in
another function, the optimization level seemed to affect things, with -O0
causing the correct behavior, but in this example that doesn't seem to be the

I'm using a clang-cl built from trunk (rL350342) with cl.exe and these CMake
arguments (from stage 1 of clang-x64-ninja-win7).
cmake -GNinja C:\src\llvm\llvm -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release

I don't think my compiler is broken otherwise because when I run check-all, the
only two tests I fail are the same that fail on the builder right now
