    Description

      All paths that lead to this null pointer comparison already dereference the pointer earlier

      Defect 77705 (STATIC_C)
      Checker REVERSE_INULL (subcategory none)
      File: /src/third_party/wiredtiger/src/conn/conn_api.c
      Function __wt_encryptor_config
      /src/third_party/wiredtiger/src/conn/conn_api.c, line: 442
      Directly dereferencing pointer "encryptor".

          	if (encryptor->customize != NULL) {
      

      /src/third_party/wiredtiger/src/conn/conn_api.c, line: 445
      Null-checking "encryptor" suggests that it may be null, but it has already been dereferenced on all paths leading to the check.

          		if (encryptor == NULL)
