the & 31 is a hack really (and choosen because at least clang
optimizes it out)
the "correct" way would be to test, print a warning and return an
error code. That way if a valid (non fuzzed) file triggers it we know
that the range of get_ue_golomb() is potentially too small.
With the & 31 no information is shown, before this patch here
ubsan would show it as well without the normal case being slower
so its all perfect already ... except ... that its wrong because its
maybe someone has a better idea ...

I think my todo list is too long to fix all. Maybe others are
interrested in helping.
The really tricky part is to fix some of these issues without causing
a slowdown in speed relevant code and without making maintaince
for example decoding a file from a bug report with ubsan and looking
for overflows can in rare instances directly point to the problem
or close to it. One needs to keep this in mind when Fixing/Hiding
ubsan issues, sometimes a log message and error out is better than
extending precission or using unsigned sometimes its not ...

Awnsering whenever a program halts or runs forever is
On a turing machine, in general impossible (turings halting problem).
On any real computer, always possible as a real computer has a finite number
of states N, and will either halt in less than N cycles or never halt.
