The reason for FREENULL is because not all platforms correctly ignore
free(NULL). I hope you are certain all the platforms VLC is built on
do correctly handle free(NULL).
For example, applications I have built with unpatched Microsoft Visual
Studio 6.0 will sometimes crash and do other weird things if the program
calls free(NULL). This particular bug was corrected in MVS 6.0 service
