             Bug #: 11876
           Summary: missed null dereference warning
           Product: clang
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P
         Component: C++
        AssignedTo: unassignedclangbugs at nondot.org
        ReportedBy: nicholas at mxc.ca
                CC: dgregor at apple.com, llvmbugs at cs.uiuc.edu
    Classification: Unclassified

I would like a couple new warnings. Testcase:

  class Cls {};
  int foo(Cls &obj) {
    if (&obj == 0) return 0;
    return 1;
  void bar() {

First of all, this was found in the wild, actually in clang/Stmt.h and reported
on IRC. There's a null dereference in an attempt to form a null reference
argument in bar. That should produce a warning. Secondly the callee has a check
for whether the reference argument is a null. That should produce another
