            Bug ID: 42318
           Summary: Overload resolution and enum promotion
           Product: clang
           Version: trunk
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P
         Component: C++
          Assignee: unassignedclangbugs at nondot.org

Clang incorrectly rejects the following program, saying "call to 'bar' is

enum E : short {
        Foo = 1

int bar(int) { return 1; }
int bar(short) { return 0; }

int main() {
        return bar(Foo);

According to [over.ics.rank/4.2](http://eel.is/c++draft/over.ics.rank#4.2), the
`int bar(short)` overload is a better match:

> A conversion that promotes an enumeration whose underlying type is fixed to its underlying type is better than one that promotes to the promoted underlying type, if the two are different.

The bug manifest itself in various versions of clang, including the trunk.
