Thanks, applied.

I did not include the change to use volatile pointer for err value since
I hope that such a trick is not needed. Is the compiler really allowed
to "optimize" away such a case? &err is an int*, but it is given to a
function as a void* parameter. Is strict aliasing going to cause
problems because of that?
