const A = struct {
    value: u64,

fn foobar(param: usize) void {
    bar(@bitCast(A, param));

fn bar(param: A) void {}

test "aoeu" {

expected some kind of error about not being allowed to bitcast a non-extern, non-packed struct.

instead got this:

Invalid bitcast
  %2 = bitcast i64 %1 to %A, !dbg !574
Call parameter type does not match function signature!
  %2 = bitcast i64 %1 to %A, !dbg !574
 %A*  call fastcc void @bar(%A %2), !dbg !575
LLVM ERROR: Broken module found, compilation aborted!

thanks to IRC user gamester for the report.
