            Bug ID: 42292
           Summary: -Wnull-dereference warns about pointers with
                    address_space attribute
           Product: clang
           Version: 8.0
          Hardware: PC
                OS: FreeBSD
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P
         Component: -New Bugs

% cat test.c
int f(void) {                 
    return *(int __attribute__((address_space(256))) *) 0;
% clang80 -S test.c
test.c:2:12: warning: indirection of non-volatile null pointer will be deleted,
      not trap [-Wnull-dereference]
    return *(int __attribute__((address_space(256))) *) 0;
test.c:2:12: note: consider using __builtin_trap() or qualifying pointer with
1 warning generated.

This warning seems incorrect for pointers with address_space attribute.  Clang
also doesn't delete the dereference.  It correctly produces "movl %gs:0, %eax".
