[llvm-dev] [llvm-dev, cfe-dev] Fix failures uncovered by randomly shuffling containers before sorting

I have a patch under review which randomly shuffles a container before 
calling std::sort or array_pod_sort: https://reviews.llvm.org/D39245

This is intended to uncover non-deterministic sorting order for elements 
with the same key.
However, the patch cannot be merged unless the failures it uncovers can 
be fixed - otherwise bots will start breaking as soon as it merges.

The following are the current ninja check-all failures with this patch 
(across all targets on an asserts build):

     Clang :: Driver/autocomplete.c
     Clang :: Misc/diag-template-diffing.cpp

I am trying to fix as many of these as possible. However, it would be 
much faster if you can look into the failures related to your specific 
areas and fix those :)

In order to reproduce a failure you would need to apply the above patch 
and then change calls to std::sort and array_pod_sort with llvm::sort in 
the source/header files related to your test case.
Alternately, you can apply these 2 patches which convert *all* std::sort 
& array_pod_sort to llvm::sort:
llvm --> https://reviews.llvm.org/differential/diff/120879
clang --> https://reviews.llvm.org/differential/diff/120880

Here's the bugzilla to track this -->
