I was nervous about this patch because I suspected that with the patch
we'll warn twice about duplicates in templates: first when declaring the
class, and again when instantiating it.

The problem is that it's hard to avoid warning when instantiating.
There's no way to know if:

  template <typename T>
  struct S {
    void f(int);
    void f(T);

contains a duplicate until we know what "T" is -- anything but
cv-qualified "int" is OK.

However, it looks like your patch will be OK because you will only error
out on the uninstantiated template if the method is definitely a
duplicate, and then we'll not add the function to the class, and so
we'll not get another error upon instantiation.
