--- Comment #1 from FeepingCreature <default_357-line@yahoo.de> ---
Simpler repro:

```
void decodeA()() { }
void decodeB()() { }

alias decode = decodeA;
alias decode = decodeB;

void foo(alias A)() { }

void main() { foo!decode; }
```

Seems it doesn't know how to mangle overload sets created by alias.

  Fix issue 21255: Ignore overload declarations when checking for mangling
specialcases for template parameters.

  The problem is that overload declarations are kind of "fake declarations"
  without many of the properties DMD expects from ordinary declarations. So
  when we try to mangle them, DMD thinks they're "default" linkage, because
  that's LINK.init, and then it errors with "forward declaration" because
  I guess that can't happen normally?

  Anyways, there's already code for mangling an overload set; we just have
  to avoid crashing until we reach it.

  So now the commit just bypasses the bit that checks for special cases in
  declarations, ie. pragma(mangle) and extern(C).

  Why doesn't the handler for Declaration do all this?

  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
