      Be more const-correct · 8db5ca90
      Simon McVittie authored
      As a general design principle, strings that we aren't going to modify
      should usually be const. When compiling with -Wwrite-strings, quoted
      string constants are of type "const char *", causing compiler warnings
      when they are assigned to char * variables.
      Unfortunately, we need to add casts in a few places:
      * _dbus_list_append(), _dbus_test_oom_handling() and similar generic
        "user-data" APIs take a void *, not a const void *, so we have
        to cast
      * For historical reasons the execve() family of functions take a
        (char * const *), i.e. a constant pointer to an array of mutable
        strings, so again we have to cast
      * _dbus_spawn_async_with_babysitter similarly takes a char **,
        although we can make it a little more const-correct by making it
        take (char * const *) like execve() does
      This also incorporates a subsequent patch by Thomas Zimmermann to
      put various string constants in static storage, which is a little
      more efficient.

      DBusMessage: Fix UB (misaligned access) in call to _dbus_header_set_field_basic() · 178872ea
      Marc Mutz authored
      The const void* 'value' pointer that is passed the address of a
      uint32_t here eventually ends up in _dbus_marshal_write_basic(), which
      casts it to a DBusBasicValue, a union type that has an alignment of
      eight on 64-bit platforms and is therefore more-aligned than the
      The read of a value of a more-aligned type through a pointer to a less
      -aligned type is undefined behaviour.
      Fix by storing the uint32 in a DBusBasicValue and passing that instead.
      Found by UBSan:
