In function, pointer, and pointer-to-member declarators, the attribute-specifier appertains to the type being declared, but the syntax has the attribute-specifieropt appearing before the full type is seen — i.e., before the cv-qualifier-seqopt and, for the function case, before the ref-qualifieropt. GNU attributes appear after these elements (and, for the function case, after the exception-specificationopt as well). It would be better, both logically and for consistency with existing practice, to move the attribute-specifieropt accordingly.
