Iam curious about this as well.
Is there an actual platform relevant to ffmpeg on which
posix_memalign() + realloc() fails ?
Also the "calloc, malloc, or realloc" Text has been removed from ISO C
Otherwise, if ptr does not match a pointer earlier returned by the
calloc, malloc, or realloc function, or if the space has been deallocated by a call
to the free or realloc function, the behavior is undefined.
Otherwise, if ptr does not match a pointer earlier returned by a memory
management function, or if the space has been deallocated by a call to the free or
realloc function, the behavior is undefined.
mac osx seems to say:
Memory that is allocated via posix_memalign() can be used as an argument in subsequent calls to
realloc(3), reallocf(3), and free(3). (Note however, that the allocation returned by realloc(3) or
reallocf(3) is not guaranteed to preserve the original alignment).
dragonfly bsd seems to say:
Memory that is allocated via posix_memalign() can be used as an argument
in subsequent calls to realloc(3), reallocf(3), and free(3).
