In gcc-11, -Wnonnull considers the implicit this argument of every C++ nonstatic member function to have been implicitly declared with attribute nonnull and triggers warnings for calls where the pointer is null. [1] 

Should clang also do this? This change helped webkit identify and fix some issues. [2][3][4][5] 

Building clang trunk with gcc-11 produces 13 new warnings related to this enhancement. They are in MachineModuleInfo.cpp and RangeAdapterTest.cpp.[6] Do these look like valid issues?
