Hi Hal,

Thank you for the review.  I've attached updated patch.

I removed all MPI-specific diagnostic texts.  Now diagnostics read:

+def warn_type_safety_type_mismatch : Warning<
+  "argument type %0 doesn't match specified %1 type tag "
+  "%select{that requires %3|}2">, InGroup<TypeSafety>;
+def warn_type_safety_pointee_type_mismatch : Warning<
+  "pointee type %0 doesn't match specified %1 type tag "
+  "%select{that requires %3|}2">, InGroup<TypeSafety>;

"that requires" part is printed if layout_compatible is not set.

I didn't include tag name into diagnostic text because generally clang
avoids printing things back to the user.  The diagnostic underlines
the tag source range instead.  If you think that tag needs to be
printed, I can change that.

I second this.  I'd love to hear how this fits into clang.
