Subject[CHECKER] 15 potential pointer dereference errors in 2.4.3
I ran the null pointer dereference checker over 2.4.3 and it found the
following 15 potential errors. As usual, the context given with each
report may be misleading so you'll probably need to inspect the
source. The checker tries to help by printing the function it thinks
is returning NULL.

Also, I've run the checker over 2.2.19, and there were a bunch of
issues but they would require some time and effort to inspect. Some
of them are the same as issues reported for 2.4.x. Would it be useful
to report these?
