Show note for -Wmissing-prototypes for functions with parameters

Authored by aaronpuchert on May 31 2019, 1:59 PM.



There was a search for non-prototype declarations for the function, but
we only showed the results for zero-parameter functions. Now we show the
note for functions with parameters as well, but we omit the fix-it hint
suggesting to add void.

Add checks that we don't emit the fix-it when we shouldn't.

In this case, we could probably generate the parameter declarations for the user still, couldn't we? e.g.,

int f(); // We could insert "int i, int j" here as the fixit
int g(); // Just like we try to suggest "void" here already

int f(int i, int j) { return i + j; }
int g(void) { return 12; }

That could be done in a follow-up patch though.

One difficulty might be that certain types used in the parameter list of the definition aren't available where the declaration is, like

int f();

struct X { int n; };
int f(struct X *x) { return x->n;}

So I'm not sure we can always do it, but sometimes perhaps.

That's a good point and reason enough to not try for it in this version of the patch (if at all).
