C++ PATCH to warn about ignored attributes

While looking at PR 51930, I discovered that we were silently ignoring attributes on explicit instantiations; this patch warns about this. This isn't exactly a regression, but the submitter ran into it as a result of a behavior change in 4.7, and the patch is extremely safe, so I think it should go in.

Tested x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, applying to trunk.
