Here's a simple C program:

#define x /***/5
int main(void) {
    return x;

`gcc -Wall` compiles it without any warnings, but opening it causes
Emacs to hang, and sometimes even to freeze hard.

It has something to do with the macro, but I haven't been able to
figure out exactly what's going on.

Here's a test function with an even smaller reproducing example:

(defun c-mode-hang ()
    (insert "#define /***/5")

Running that function under the profiler suggests that the problem is
in `c-end-of-macro`:

- c-extend-region-for-CPP          13869  98%
  - c-end-of-macro                     10470  74%
    c-forward-single-comment        2759  19%

This may have something to do with commit 39acaf, or maybe 6b5388.

GNU Emacs 27.0.50 (build 6, x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 3.22.30)

Hello, Nicholas.

That's great, thanks.  I'm closing the bug with this post.

The patch works fine, too, thanks.  But I got bogged down on the
copyright assignment sort of things for the patch.

Have you signed copyright assignment papers for Emacs?  (I think you
have, judging by the number of commits in your name, but I don't know
where to look to check.)

Otherwise, it would appear that your patch is a "trivial" patch, in that
it is less than 15 lines long.  But I think that only applies when the
total number of lines you've contributed to Emacs is less than about 15.

So, sorry about all this non-creative stuff, but would you please tell
me whether or not you've signed an Emacs copyright assignment.  Then I
should be able to commit your patch.

I don't know (and haven't cheated by researching it ;-), but if I had to
guess, I'd say Paul Eggert.
