We have to consider the worst situation, a memory read exception caused by the dereferencing of a multilevel pointer, while the rank of the most stable linked list from the code segment cannot meet the requirement; moreover, no address can be written, so an attacker cannot complete the multilevel dereference by constructing a self-referential linked list.
We note that lines 4 and 6 dereference a * b which has already been dereferenced in line 2 with no changes to values of a and b in the path from 2 to 6.
Since semantically, dereference (*) and address (&) are effectively inverse operations (13) (&,r' [equivalent to] *&r' [equivalent to] r'), in the above case r' will be unchanged.

The ensuing dereference cannot preserve the type of ![x.sub.c] unless it is something like [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII], but v' is not a host-provided term.

The trivial alias <x, x) holds for all access paths x, provided x does not result in a dereference of the null pointer.
