Bug ID: 285
           Summary: Backend optimizer assumes strings are null terminated.
           Product: GDC
           Version: development
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Normal
         Component: gdc

>From phobos.
inout(char)[] fromStringz(inout(char)* cString) @nogc @system pure nothrow {
    import core.stdc.string : strlen;
    return cString ? cString[0 .. strlen(cString)] : null;

void main()
    assert(fromStringz(null) == null);
    assert(fromStringz("foo") == "foo");

Although gdc calls: build_string(3, "foo"), gcc itself still expects us to
factor in the null terminator into the length.

Because of this, when optimizing an inlined 'fromStringz',  the result of
strlen("foo") is folded into the value '2', instead of the expected '3'.
