function attributes placement



               Hi !

        I always organize my C files with static functions placed before any
functions that use them (when that's possible), hence I don't need to
prototype them first.

        That's problematic whith function attributes like noreturn and const,
because they're supposed to appear in function declarations. I would tend to
think that my static functions are /declared/ at the same time they're
/defined/, but gcc doesn't think that way: if I put attributes in my static
functions (definitions), I get a parse error.

        This is not a very kind neither informative message, and I would even
say that this could be considered as a bug. Comments ?
