This PR is about not very clear error message when one tries to 
add attributes *after* the declarator in a function definition.
cc1plus already handles this well, so I used the same message.

Regtested/bootstrapped on x86_64-linux, ok for trunk?

	PR c/60915
	* c-parser.c (c_parser_declaration_or_fndef): Give better error if
	function-definition has an attribute after the declarator.

	* gcc.dg/pr60915.c: New test.

I thought you had an earlier version of the patch where, instead of 
"forbidden", you said "move the attribute" so users would know that 
writing the attribute *before* was fine? That sounded much better to me.

No strong opinions on which of the two is better.  Slight preference to 
sync with g++.  You choose.  Either is OK for the trunk.
