The next sentence: «The potential scope of a parameter or function-local predefined variable begins at its point of declaration»

[basic.scope.pdecl]/9: «The point of declaration for a function-local predefined variable is immediately before the function-body of a function definition.»

> Pay attention to that there is used a function declaration that is not the function definition.

There is no point of declaration of __func__ here, then.
