Clang generates these warnings in a lot of places in Eigen. There is an outstanding bug on the issue here:
Which is now over a year old. I suspect that not all the cases of this issue have been found either.

I have the same warning being generated. I am pretty sure it is due to line 158 in Assign.h. Currently it is:

  static EIGEN_STRONG_INLINE void run(Derived1 &dst, const Derived2 &src, int outer)

However, fixing it is non-trivial. Changing the type of outer to either Derived1::Index or Derived2::Index leads to the same issue on line 161 of Assign.h when assign_DefaultTraversal_InnerUnrolling recurses to itself, and I have no idea how to fix that. There is also the minor problem that "Index" within this function is actually a variable and so not available as a typename.

As a general question - why was the decision taken to to define the "Index" type on a per-class basis, instead of some kind of global typedef for Eigen?
