Hmm, is that true?

struct cmd2process {
        struct subprocess_entry subprocess;
        unsigned int supported_capabilities;

static int start_multi_file_filter_fn(struct subprocess_entry *subprocess)
        static int versions[] = {2, 0};
        static struct subprocess_capability capabilities[] = {
                { "clean",  CAP_CLEAN  },
                { "smudge", CAP_SMUDGE },
                { "delay",  CAP_DELAY  },
                { NULL, 0 }
        struct cmd2process *entry = (struct cmd2process *)subprocess;
        return subprocess_handshake(subprocess, "git-filter", versions, NULL,

The cast "struct subprocess_entry *" to "struct cmd2process *" we
see here does require that the address of the subprocess field must
be the same as the address of the structure itself.  So I'd have to
say that the comment still is true, but not for the reasons of what
is in "struct subprocess_entry".
