Sure this fixes problems, but can you make it more compact, i.e. no need
to add most if not all those 'int ret;' lines, just check the asprintf
result directly, i.e.:

                             if (asprintf(&str, val ? "TRUE" : "FALSE") < 0)
                                     str = NULL;

saving the return value for that function is interesting when you need
to know how many bytes it printed to do some extra calculation, but if
all you need is to know if it failed, checking against < 0 is enough,
no?
