[C PATCH] Improve error on attrs after declarator in a fndef (PR c/60915)

This PR is about not very clear error message when one tries to 
add attributes *after* the declarator in a function definition.
cc1plus already handles this well, so I used the same message.

Regtested/bootstrapped on x86_64-linux, ok for trunk?

2014-04-24  Marek Polacek  <>

	PR c/60915
	* c-parser.c (c_parser_declaration_or_fndef): Give better error if
	function-definition has an attribute after the declarator.

	* gcc.dg/pr60915.c: New test.
