Comment (by eschnett):

 No, we can't use the "length" variable passed in, because the first call
 may pass length=1, and the next may pass length=100. A typical operating
 system length limit may be 64.

 Also, static variable probably cannot be VLAs.

 Yes, there is no such logic, but there was no such logic there before
 either. The patch doesn't add error checking.
