Daiki Ueno created a merge request: https://gitlab.com/gnutls/gnutls/-/merge_requests/1662

Project:Branches: dueno/gnutls:wip/dueno/pointer-cleanup to gnutls/gnutls:master
Author:   Daiki Ueno

This introduces `GNUTLS_DEFINE_POINTER_CLEANUP_FUNC` macro and definine
wrapper functions around `gnutls_*_deinit`, to be used with the cleanup
attribute supported by modern C compilers.

That enables automatic cleanup of resources inside a function;
applications could initialize pointers like the following:

    gnutls_session_t session = NULL;

  if (err)
    return err;

Then `gnutls_deinit` is automatically called on session when the
function returns error.
