[erlang-patches] [erlang-bugs] syntax_tools anonymous function error

Hello again,

I’ve pushed the fix. It is just a partial revert of the previous commit on erl_syntax. Such a thing would have been avoided by basic tests. Or just double checking the documentation about the AST, I’m to blame for that.

Should the AST be made consistent between local and remote implicit funs in R17A? I can write a patch for that. With proper tests and documentation.
