            Bug ID: 43470
           Summary: shared_ptr<T[]> doesn't work as c++17 says it should.
           Product: libc++
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P
         Component: All Bugs
          Assignee: unassignedclangbugs at nondot.org
          Reporter: jorg.brown at gmail.com

Consider this simple code:

#include <memory>

const uint32_t* start(std::shared_ptr<const uint32_t[]> smart_array) {
    return smart_array.get();

This compiles when using libstdc++ : https://godbolt.org/z/cKHZnl

But not under libc++ : https://godbolt.org/z/pDGSS5

The error I get is:

cannot initialize return object of type 'const uint32_t *' (aka 'const unsigned
int *') with an rvalue of type 'std::__1::shared_ptr<unsigned int
const[]>::element_type *' (aka 'unsigned int const (*)[]')

    return smart_array.get();


And speaking of element_type, that may be the fundamental underlying problem. 
In C++17, the type referred to by shared_ptr<T>::element_type changed from:
