Re: [patch] Error on setenv(..., NULL, ...)

I temporarily fixed the warning with:

@@ -121,7 +121,7 @@ __add_to_environ (name, value, combined, replace)
      causes setenv (..., NULL, ...) to dump core now instead of
      corrupting memory later.  */
   const size_t namelen = strlen (name);
-  size_t vallen;
+  size_t vallen = 0;
   if (combined != NULL)
     vallen = strlen (value) + 1;

"make check" then fails a lot of tests, including stdlib/tst-environ,
which fails like so:

getenv #2 failed
getenv #3 failed

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
strlen () at ../sysdeps/x86_64/strlen.S:106

(gdb) bt
#0  strlen () at ../sysdeps/x86_64/strlen.S:106

#2  0x00007ffff7c9242d in putenv (string=0x6031a0 "FOOBAR=some longer
value") at putenv.c:78

So it looks to me like the 2ecccaede9097f867284d352a881d8f226ba4fb7 is
quite broken, and should be reverted.
