The following C++ code should not compile:

template<class T>
int t(T i)
  return f (i);  // error: f not visible here

f (int i)
  return i;

  return t(1);

The C++ standard clause 14.6.3 states that names should be looked up from the
point they are used. I.e. functions defined after that point are not visible.
This is true for regular functions, but GCC does not get this right for
template functions.
