I only looked at the very first ones:
API Argument with 'nonnull' attribute passed null romcc.c:10780
The thing to note here is that there are conditions to the error.
Code can very well be making sure that those conditions are in fact
never met, and I don't think scanbuild does a complex enough analysis
to know for sure. (Quite understandably!)
I agree it would be nice to have perfect analysis, and/or code more
suitable for analysis, but just want to point out that there can be
false positives depending on the coding style.
