Judging on the static analyzer tool's message, I don't see anything
wrong with it. The code contains a potential unintentional overflow
error. The author might have been well aware of the overflow and not
cared and in that case this is valid C, but the analyzer has no way of
knowing that, so it flags it for review. To silence the checker you
could either cast the arithmetic to u64, or cast length to u32. Either
would clear up the ambiguity. I guess I'm not seeing why you would
blame the static checker in this case, it did the best it is possible
for it to do.
