When I compile user programs in my OS using gcc and libc++ and optimizations turned on, I get the following warning when I call 'new':
Code:
../Libraries/libcxx/public/new:248:24: warning: argument 1 value '18446744073709551599' exceeds maximum object size 9223372036854775807 [-Walloc-size-larger-than=]
  248 |   return ::operator new(__args...);


It hasn't yet caused any noticble bugs, and I the warning doesn't appear when optimizations are disabled.

I'm curious why I'm getting this warning through.
18446744073709551599 = 0xFFFFFFFFFFFFFFEF Is something trying to allocate -16 bytes?

Are you sure you're using Clang? That looks like a GCC warning.

The static analyzer seems to think so. There may be a problem in your bounds checking, or (if you're actually using GCC) you might have hit a false positive.

You're right, I'm using GCC 12.2.0.
