While I trust Clang and the matchers to unroll the type and still match, I'd prefer also adding a test case for

typedef TMyStruct* PMyStruct2;

or somesuch.

And perhaps a "copy" of these cases where they come from template arguments, in case the checker can also warn for that?

Why is this printed at sizeof(A*)? Do we not print the name of the actual type used in the expression?

Aside from the testing request, this LGTM.

The original check did this, so it's not really new behavior here. I don't recall the rationale off the top of my head, but I'd guess it's because the type is not really salient, but the fact that the type is a pointer is.

New tests added.

I added the new test, but templates are outside the scope of this particular patch. They should be tested (and fixed if the tests fail) in another patch.
