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

It's not documented in the GCC manual. I found documentation for it here:

This points to a freely-readable PDF.

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.

Ah, sorry, I was thinking about my translation of that into code that did not convert pointers back from uintptr_t.
