I don't think this patch handles pre-compiled headers correctly.  Also
I think some test cases would be appropriate.

(We have an internal patch for __COUNTER__ support which we plan to
submit when and if our copyright assignment is completed.  I don't say
this to discourage you from fixing your own patch.  If you modify your
patch to correctly handle PCH and documentation, then I think it
should be included when we go back to stage 1.)
