Hi there!,

As part of my application process to the next GSoC I'm working on the 
TODO in OpenMPOpt.cpp line 437:

     // TODO: We should validate the declaration agains the types we expect.


I have a question. When there is a mismatch in the types (return type or 
argument types) between the function declaration found and the runtime 
library function, what should I do?. Show an error or a warning?, 
continuing with the pass or exiting the program?.
