I couldn't find any documentation for this __CHKP__ macro.

The code that I committed does not have such "bad" pointers in intermediate
expressions either. It computes a valid pointer, converts it to uintptr_t,
does some arithmetic on it, and then converts back to a pointer. Since the
resulting pointer is in the malloc'ed range, it is valid.
