regex: fix a SIZE_MAX macro redefinition warning
Since commit 56a1a3ab ("Silence GCC's \"cast of pointer to integer of a different size\" warning", 26-10-2015), sparse has been issuing a macro redefinition warning for the SIZE_MAX macro. However, gcc did not issue any such warning. After commit 56a1a3ab, in terms of the order of #includes and #defines, the code looked something like: $ cat -n junk.c 1 #include <stddef.h> 2 3 #define SIZE_MAX ((size_t) -1) 4 5 #include <stdint.h> 6 7 int main(int argc, char *argv[]) 8 { 9 return 0; 10 } $ $ gcc junk.c $ However, if you compile that file with -Wsystem-headers, then it will also issue a warning. Having set -Wsystem-headers in CFLAGS, using the config.mak file, then (on cygwin): $ make compat/regex/regex.o CC compat/regex/regex.o In file included from /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-pc-cygwin/4.9.3/include/stdint.h:9:0, from compat/regex/regcomp.c:21, from compat/regex/regex.c:77: /usr/include/stdint.h:362:0: warning: "SIZE_MAX" redefined #define SIZE_MAX (__SIZE_MAX__) ^ In file included from compat/regex/regex.c:69:0: compat/regex/regex_internal.h:108:0: note: this is the location of the previous definition # define SIZE_MAX ((size_t) -1) ^ $ The compilation of the compat/regex code is somewhat unusual in that the regex.c file directly #includes the other c files (regcomp.c, regexec.c and regex_internal.c). Commit 56a1a3ab added an #include of <stdint.h> to the regcomp.c file, which results in the redefinition, since this is included after the regex_internal.h header. This header file contains a 'fallback' definition for SIZE_MAX, in order to support systems which do not have the <stdint.h> header (the HAVE_STDINT_H macro is not defined). In order to suppress the warning, we move the #include of <stdint.h> from regcomp.c to the start of the compilation unit, close to the top of regex.c, prior to the #include of the regex_internal.h header.
