Hi Pádraig,
Thank you. That looks fine, modulo a formatting nit. I'd correct it like this:

 -const char* pwrite = buf
 +const char *pwrite = buf

Hi Paul,
Thank you, too.
I confirmed that all compile (using yesterday's gcc-7 snapshot) with
your patch. My only reservation is barely worth mentioning: the new
variable names, operandp and operand_lim are a bit too long for my
taste (at least in the files where all uses are very near the
definitions). On the other hand, they are also more readable than
alternatives that came to mind, and in some cases are used far enough
away from point of definition that one can justify that added length.
