The longest sequence of decl-specifiers that could possibly be a type name is taken as the decl-specifier-seq of a declaration If a type-name is encountered while parsing a decl-specifier-seq, it is interpreted as part of the decl-specifier-seq if and only if there is no previous type-specifier other than a cv-qualifier in the decl-specifier-seq..
