SubjectRe: [PATCH] C undefined behavior fix

The behaviour is undefined by the C standard. But the mentioned
pointer arithmetic is defined in the environment where it has been
used. GCC tries to optimize undefined C-standard behaviour. And
IMHO that's the point. It may optimize defined behaviour and should
not touch things undefined by the standard.

Ciao, ET.
