the following code results into a null pointer dereference in the implementation of getline when checked with divine verify.

#define _GNU_SOURCE
#include <stdio.h>

int main(void)
    char* line = NULL;
    size_t len = 0;
    getline(&line, &len, stdin);

The enclosed patch fixes the issue. Thanks!
