AST: Address of dllimport variables isn't constant

Authored by majnemer on Jun 23 2014, 12:05 AM.



The address of dllimport variables isn't something that can be
meaningfully used in a constexpr context and isn't suitable for
evaluation at load-time. They require loads from memory to properly

This fixes PR19955.

Can you add a sema test for 'extern int __declspec(dllimport) y; constexpr int *x = &y;'?

How is ZeroInitialization(E) different from Error(E)?

Sure, I'll add a SemaCXX test for that.

It isn't other than being, in my opinion, less confusing. This isn't actually an error per-se because it isn't outright nonsense, it's just not evaluatable. This matches what the codebase does for:

int x = foo();

where x is at file scope and foo isn't constexpr.
