            Bug ID: 43299
           Summary: Missing -Wunused-variable warning for static variable
                    in header
           Product: clang
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P

static int x;

#include "foo.h"

gcc -Wall produces "warning: ‘x’ defined but not used [-Wunused-variable]". 
clang -Wall produces no warning.

This is currently getting suppressed by Sema::ShouldWarnIfUnusedFileScopedDecl,
I think.  I think the reasoning here is that we don't want to emit warnings for
static constants which are included from a header.  Not sure if that reasoning
makes sense for non-const variables.

Apparently I was the last one who touched this, in r190382?  I don't remember
that at all.
