hi there,

i've been playing with clang tot and noticed the following error:

/usr/local/bin/clang -c -O3 -pipe -fno-inline-functions -fno-strict-aliasing -march=core2 -std=c99 -g -fdiagnostics-show-option -fformat-extensions -Wall  -Wcast-qual -Winline -Wmissing-include-dirs  -Wmissing-prototypes -Wnested-externs -Wpointer-arith  -Wredundant-decls -Wstrict-prototypes -Wundef  -Wno-pointer-sign -nostdinc  -I. -I/usr/git-freebsd-head/sys -I/usr/git-freebsd-head/sys/contrib/altq -D_KERNEL -DHAVE_KERNEL_OPTION_HEADERS -include opt_global.h  -fno-omit-frame-pointer -mno-aes -mno-avx -mcmodel=kernel -mno-red-zone -mno-mmx -msoft-float  -fno-asynchronous-unwind-tables -ffreestanding -Wno-error=tautological-compare -Wno-error=shift-count-negative  -Wno-error=shift-count-overflow -Wno-error=shift-overflow -Wno-error=conversion  -Wno-error=empty-body -Wno-error=gnu-designator -Wno-error=format  -Wno-error=format-invalid-specifier -Wno-error=format-extra-args -Werror  /usr/git-freebsd-head/sys/netinet/sctp_output.c

this is from a GENERIC kernel build (so INET + INET6) for amd64. is this a
false positive, or is length(sup_addr->addr_type) really == 1, thus making
sup_addr->addr_type[1] an illegal access?
