            Bug ID: 51558
           Summary: Address of dllimport symbol is not constexpr
           Product: clang
           Version: trunk
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P
         Component: C++
          Assignee: unassignedclangbugs at nondot.org
          Reporter: skyostil at chromium.org

The following C++ program fails to compile on the x64_64-pc-windows-msvc

  extern __declspec(dllimport) int x;
  constexpr int* y = &x;

Error message:

  test.cc(7,16): error: constexpr variable 'y' must be initialized by a
constant expression

This is on Clang version 14.0.0 (https://github.com/llvm/llvm-project/
ee65938357d5fffe9e586fa155b37268b5a358ac), target: x86_64-pc-windows-msvc. I
ran into this while trying to compile Perfetto (https://perfetto.dev) as a part
of Chromium.

The same program builds correctly on MSVC (tested on 19.29.30037 for x64).
Interestingly, MSVC had a regression related to this in 2018[1] which has since
been fixed.
