Re: [PATCH] Fix PR c++/37647: ICE with invalid use of constructor

Hi Mark,

The problem is that DECL_CONSTRUCTOR is set for "void A();", which
implies that we call 'grok_ctor_properties' itself calling 'copy_fn_p',
that asserts that the passed declaration "has" DECL_FUNCTION_MEMBER_P,
which is obviously not the case here.

Is there any way that we can avoid even getting the idea that this is an sfk_constructor? Your patch seems like it's a bit later than we'd like; we're concluding that the function is sfk_constructor and then backing out when we notice that ctype is NULL. Can we just avoid concluding this is a constructor at all?
The attached patch does the check earlier and reports an error when
encountering a constructor or a destructor in a non-class scope.

I've successfully tested it on x86_64-apple-darwin-9. Is it better?
OK for 4.3 and for the mainline?
