            Bug ID: 42125
           Summary: Cannot use alias template in friend declaration
           Product: clang
           Version: 8.0
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P
         Component: C++
          Assignee: unassignedclangbugs at nondot.org
          Reporter: marco.clemencic at cern.ch

trying to use an alias template in a friend declaration fails with "error:
redefinition of 'XYZ' as different kind of symbol".

This piece of code fails to compile on clang-8:
template<typename T>
class ActualStuff {};

template <typename B>
class Other {
    template<typename T>
    using Stuff = ActualStuff<T>;

#if 1
    // this fails with:
    // error: redefinition of 'Stuff' as different kind of symbol
    friend class Stuff;
    // this works
    friend class ActualStuff;

And the only way I found to make it work (as shown in the example) is to bypass
the alias.

As a side note, gcc accepts the code in the example.
