I don't think the above is a problem (the pointer foo resides on the
stack, but the string contents do not).  The following is a problem:

    const char foo[]="foobar\n";

(both the pointer and the array contents are on the stack), and indeed
this does generate a warning from gcc.

Also, had  AMD_CB_ManualBUIDSwapList() returned a  pointer to swaplist
instead  of  returning it  via  a parameter  then  it  too would  have
generated a warning.
