Re: [csmith-bugs] 2.0.0: read from and write to the same location within two sequence points

In essence, line 61 is doing something like:

*p = func_10(g_2, g_2)

where p points to g_2 and func_10 modifies g_2.

I think the accesses to g_2 constitute no ambiguity: firstly function
parameters are evaluated before the function; secondly a function are
evaluated before its return value is used. In other words, the accesses to
g_2 follow the sequence:

read g_2
read g_2
sequence point
write g_2 (in func_10)
sequence point
write g_2 (through *p)

The first two reads can be re-arranged. But that doesn't introduce
