I generated a random c program(Attached struct_bug.c) using csmith with

csmith's help says:

But generated program "struct_bug.c" does not contain any structure.
Then again the question is: should --structs force the generation of
structs or just allow it? --no-structs assures no structs are generated
but structs simply allow them to be generated, doesn't mean they will be
generated on every source file. Run csmith a couple more times and you
might see some structs in there.
There's only a bug if the developers wanted --structs to mean: always
generate code that contain structs.
