Aaah, you want me to post the bug report to BZ, not here...

Yep - the snippet + command-line options you posted was enough to reproduce
the bug.  The GCC mailing list is not for reporting bugs.


When you have a minute, can you take a look at my other message?
"Using Compound Literal + type-punning to initialize static const array"

You committed a patch that seems relevant just a few days ago. But the
documentation lead me to believe that the feature I was looking for had
been supported for a very long time (gcc 3.x at least)

I haven't read that in detail yet, but my patch just allowed the
initializing even for gnu99/gnu11 (formerly, it was only allowed in the
gnu89 mode).

Hmmm, then my test case incorrectly used gnu99.

Here's a simpler test case, using gnu89, producing the same error:

union foob { int val; struct { int X; } bits; };
static const int u = ((union foob) {.bits = { .X=42 }}).val;

$ gcc -std=gnu89 test.c
test.c:2:30: error: initializer element is not constant
 static const int u = ((union foob) {.bits = { .X=42 }}).val;

Isn't this supposed to work? Or did I misunderstand the extension?
(Tell me if I should file a bug report.)
