            Bug ID: 227329
           Summary: [PATCH] bin/expr: do not fail with "overflow" if no
                    overflow occurs
           Product: Base System
           Version: CURRENT
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Only Me
          Priority: ---
         Component: bin
          Assignee: b...@freebsd.org

Patch to fix the issue

It is possible to trigger an overflow error message with expr, even though no
overflow would occur:

$ expr -- -36854775800 - \( -9223372036854775807 - 1 \)
expr: overflow
$ _

The function assert_minus() verifies subtraction in an invert addition case,
which is not correct.
