‘clangd’ fails to find <stddef.h>, as shown here:

Above, the directory passed as ‘-resource-dir’ does not exist: instead
of ‘…-clang-12.0.1-extra’ it should be ‘…-clang-12.0.1’.

This directory name is determined in ‘clangd/CompileCommands.cpp’:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
std::string detectStandardResourceDir() {
  static int Dummy; // Just an address in this process.
  return CompilerInvocation::GetResourcesPath("clangd", (void *)&Dummy);


CommandMangler CommandMangler::detect() {
  CommandMangler Result;
  Result.ClangPath = detectClangPath();
  Result.ResourceDir = detectStandardResourceDir();
  Result.Sysroot = detectSysroot();
  return Result;


  if (ResourceDir && !Has("-resource-dir"))
    Cmd.push_back(("-resource-dir=" + *ResourceDir));
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

We should either fix ‘GetResourcesPath’ or patch the file above so it
returns the Clang directory name known at build time.
