MallocAllocator returns nonnull?

The MallocAllocator Allocate function is defined as:

  LLVM_ATTRIBUTE_RETURNS_NONNULL void *Allocate(size_t Size,
                                                size_t /*Alignment*/) {
    return malloc(Size);

…but malloc can totally return NULL? What’s up?

I assume this is intended to be an optimization/warning silencer? (i.e. LLVM just normally doesn’t handle OOM) …but this can cause security issues (via nullptr deref)?

On a related note, maybe Allocate should be marked as LLVM_ATTRIBUTE_RETURNS_NOALIAS?
