Subject: [PATCH 5.16 123/227] libsubcmd: Fix use-after-free for realloc(..., 0)

From: Kees Cook <keescook@...omium.org>

commit 52a9dab6d892763b2a8334a568bd4e2c1a6fde66 upstream.

GCC 12 correctly reports a potential use-after-free condition in the
xrealloc helper. Fix the warning by avoiding an implicit "free(ptr)"
when size == 0:

In file included from help.c:12:
In function 'xrealloc',
    inlined from 'add_cmdname' at help.c:24:2: subcmd-util.h:56:23: error: pointer may be used after 'realloc' [-Werror=use-after-free]
   56 |                 ret = realloc(ptr, size);
      |                       ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

   52 |         void *ret = realloc(ptr, size);

   58 |                         ret = realloc(ptr, 1);
