Nathan Froyd - Dec. 9, 2010, 6:16 p.m.
For whatever reason, the C and C++ front-ends report invalid
indirections in different ways.  The patch below unifies them into a
common routine, invalid_indirection_error.  This change has the pleasant
side-effect of printing out type information in the C++ front-end for
such errors.  If folks want to change the error messages later, it also
becomes somewhat easier.

Tested on x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu.  OK to commit?

gcc/
	* c-typeck.c (build_indirect_ref): Call invalid_indirection_error.

gcc/c-family/
	* c-common.h (invalid_indirection_error): Declare.
	* c-common.c (invalid_indirection_error): Define.

gcc/cp/
	* typeck.c (cp_build_indirect_ref): Call invalid_indirection_error.

The C changes are OK with the addition of gcc_assert (c_dialect_cxx ()) in 
the RO_NULL case.

OK.
