Extended Description

Hi,

the following bit of code:

template <int N, typename T> struct Foo
{
typedef T attribute((vector_size(N*sizeof(T)))) type;
};

compiles fine with gcc 4.7.2, however when compiled with clang 3.2 I get:

foo.cc:4:41: error: expected ')'
typedef T attribute((vector_size(Nsizeof(T)))) type;
^
)
foo.cc:4:41: error: expected ')'
typedef T attribute((vector_size(N
sizeof(T)))) type;
^
)
foo.cc:4:53: error: expected member name or ';' after declaration specifiers
typedef T attribute((vector_size(N*sizeof(T)))) type;


Moreover even doing:

template <int N, typename T> struct Foo
{
typedef T __attribute__((vector_size(16))) type;
};

does not work and gives:

foo.cc:4:28: error: invalid vector element type 'T'
typedef T __attribute__((vector_size(16))) type;
                         ^

The only way to get it to work is to eliminate the dependency on the T template argument:

template <int N, typename T> struct Foo
{
typedef int __attribute__((vector_size(16))) type;
};

compiles fine on both clang 3.2 and gcc 4.7.2

Any idea?

Ciao,
Giulio

I see this too under Ubuntu 14.04 with clang version 3.5.0 (trunk 210014).

I'm gonna handle this one by changing vector_size attribute to have an AST node (as aligned and align_value attributes do, for example).

Is anyone assigned to this issue?
It seems like Alexey Frolov is not working for Intel anymore, and the most recent activity was a discussion on how to resolve the issue http://lists.llvm.org/pipermail/cfe-dev/2015-June/043653.html

I'm pretty sure llvm/llvm-bugzilla-archive#34878 is a duplicate of this issue.

Best regards,

llvm/llvm-bugzilla-archive#16986 looks like another duplicate, and it seems the issue was solved in clang 9, yay. /Lars
