Package: g++-6
Version: 6.1.1-11

I ran into this issue while trying to prepare the coz profiler for

The <stdnoreturn.h> header file seem to be inefficient when using cc and
clang, be ignored causing an build error when using c++.

I found this example code on
<URL: >, and it fail
to build with c++, but build with both cc and clang:

% cat > y.c
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdnoreturn.h>
// causes undefined behavior if i <= 0
// exits if i > 0
noreturn void stop_now(int i) // or _Noreturn void stop_now(int i)
    if (i > 0) exit(i);
int main(void)
  puts("Preparing to stop...");
  puts("This code is never executed.");
% gcc y.c 
y.c: In function 'stop_now':
y.c:10:1: warning: 'noreturn' function does return
% ./a.out 
Preparing to stop...
% c++ y.c 
y.c:7:1: error: 'noreturn' does not name a type
 noreturn void stop_now(int i) // or _Noreturn void stop_now(int i)
y.c: In function 'int main()':
y.c:15:13: error: 'stop_now' was not declared in this scope
% clang y.c 
y.c:10:1: warning: function declared 'noreturn' should not return 
1 warning generated.

Perhaps something that should be fixed?

Happy hacking
