            Bug ID: 34575
           Summary: __attribute__((__format__(printf()))) doesn't warn
                    about NULL format string
           Product: clang
           Version: 5.0
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P
         Component: Frontend
          Assignee: unassignedclangbugs at nondot.org

Take this code:

    #include <stdio.h>

    int main()
      printf(NULL, "x");
      return 0;

gcc helpfully warns that:

    <source>: In function 'int main()':
    5 : <source>:5:19: warning: null argument where non-null required (argument
1) [-Wnonnull]
       printf(NULL, "x");
    5 : <source>:5:19: warning: too many arguments for format

while clang doesn't say anything (it doesn't even warn about extra arguments).
It would be nice if it did.
