Re: [PATCH] detect incompatible aliases (PR c/81854)

Why the restriction to prototyped types?  I'd expect a warning for an 
alias between unprototyped functions of types int () and void (), for 
example.  Or for an alias between void () and void (char), as a function 
with a char argument is not compatible with a non-prototype function in C.  
Is this an issue with the problem being diagnosed at a point where the 
langhooks for language-specific type compatibility rules aren't available?  
If that's preventing diagnosing incompatibility involving unprototyped 
functions, then the patch is OK.
