clang-cl: Enable /Zc:twoPhase by default if targeting MSVC 2017 update 3 or newer

Authored by thakis on Aug 18 2019, 11:08 AM.



MSVC 2017 update 3 (_MSC_VER 1911) enables /Zc:twoPhase by default, and
so should clang-cl:

clang-cl takes the MSVC version it emulates from the -fmsc-version flag,
or if that's not passed it tries to check what the installed version of
MSVC is and uses that, and failing that it uses a default version that's
currently 1911. So this changes the default if no -fmsc-version flag is
passed and no installed MSVC is detected. (It also changes the default
if -fmsc-version is passed or MSVC is detected, and either indicates
_MSC_VER >= 1911.)

As mentioned in the MSDN article, the Windows SDK header files in
version 10.0.15063.0 (Creators Update or Redstone 2) and earlier
versions do not work correctly with /Zc:twoPhase. If you need to use
these old SDKs with a new clang-cl, explicitly pass /Zc:twoPhase- to get
the old behavior.

Fixes PR43032.

lgtm! I can't believe we didn't notice this for a year. Not long ago a Firefox developer filed a bug for a crash with -fdelayed-template-parsing, and if this works for them, we won't have to debug it. :)
