Subject: [PATCH] fast-export: avoid NULL pointer arithmetic
Date: Wed, 9 May 2018 23:06:46 +0200
Message-ID: <d50a4d5d-3b99-453e-1b52-4e733453fb78@web.de> (raw)

Clang 6 reports the following warning, which is turned into an error in a
DEVELOPER build:

	builtin/fast-export.c:162:28: error: performing pointer arithmetic on a null pointer has undefined behavior [-Werror,-Wnull-pointer-arithmetic]
		return ((uint32_t *)NULL) + mark;
		       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ^
	1 error generated.

The compiler is correct, and the error message speaks for itself.  There
is no need for any undefined operation -- just cast mark to void * or
uint32_t after an intermediate cast to uintptr_t.  That encodes the
integer value into a pointer and later decodes it as intended.

While at it remove an outdated comment -- intptr_t has been used since
ffe659f94d (parse-options: make some arguments optional, add callbacks),
committed in October 2007.
