As mentioned in 1/5 these are not actual issues as the compiler (and
thus sanitizer) should _not_ dereference the pointer(s) but do
arithmetic on it(them).
I've seen various tools in the past flag such code as problematic
(with latest one being clang, iirc), so "fixing" them isn't that bad
Just a friendly request: please reach out to the UBSAN people so that
they can correct these false-positives on their end.
On the patches in question: please follow the existing coding style.
Expressions like  should be split in separate lines .
if (foo) bar = bbar;
bar = bbar;
