The purpose of using temp is unknown, but adding an allocation failure
report should be helpful.

Yuck.  Use of xmalloc() may be more appropriate.

Use of BUG() in a context like this is never the right thing to do.
BUG() is reserved for cases where the condition should NEVER hold
true in a correctly written program, and even for a correctly
written program, malloc() can fail after you allocated too much
memory from the heap.

Don't you understand the code?

Why do you check whenever allocating temp is successful?
