Intel C++ Compiler rejects presumably valid code with out-of-line template member function definition

Intel C++ Compiler (EDG-based frontend) rejects the following code:

template <typename Descriptor>
class hash_table
{
public:
  typedef int value_type;

  template <typename Argument, int Callback (value_type *, Argument)>
  void traverse (Argument);
};

template <typename Descriptor>
template <typename Argument, int Callback (typename hash_table <Descriptor>::value_type *, Argument)>
void hash_table <Descriptor>::traverse (Argument) {}

with the following error message:

$ /opt/intel/bin/icpc -v
icpc version 16.0.0 (gcc version 4.9.0 compatibility)
$ /opt/intel/bin/icpc -c test.cc 
test.cc(13): error: declaration is incompatible with function template "void hash_table<Descriptor>::traverse<Argument,Callback>(Argument)" (declared at line 8)
  void hash_table <Descriptor>::traverse (Argument) {}
                                ^

compilation aborted for test.cc (code 2)

Both GCC 4.9.x and later and Clang 3.7 accept this code. See also: question on Stack Overflow.

Hi Mikhail,

I've escalated this issue to our engineering team.  Thank you for your small test case.

Hi Mikhail,

This issue has been fixed in the latest 16.0 compiler update.  FYI.
