I can't begin to imagine where one would do something like:
(gdb) set var retp = fgets(buf, 32, stdin)
in GDB. If I do this from the command line I get:
Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x00007ffff7852522 in fgets () from /lib/libc.so.6
0x00007ffff7852522 <fgets+50>: mov (%rdx),%eax
I can get
(gdb) set var reti = getchar()
to work as described. The proposed patch might be the right thing to do but,
unless Joseph Yen can give a compelling reason as to why someone would
generally type something like this, I intend to leave it as it is until after
the release as I am unsure whether it will have unintended side effects.
