I forgot to mention: can we please get a Coccinelle rule added to
catch these cases in the future? (And make sure sfr is running it? :)
)

My attempt at it was:

@@
expression LEN, BUF, SIZE;
identifier FUNC;
@@

  LEN += snprintf(BUF + LEN, SIZE - LEN, ...);
  ... when != LEN &gt; SIZE
      when != LEN &gt;= SIZE
* FUNC(..., LEN, ...)

But this needs adjustment to deal with some false positives (like using min()).
