That's right, I posted it here:
http://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=60915#c1
but in the end I thought it'll be better to stay in sync with C++.
Here's the version from the BZ with a testcase.  
So whatever people like more...

2014-04-24  Marek Polacek  <polacek@redhat.com>

	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.


	Marek
