Observation: the code now does

#define VERIFY(_x) _x=talloc_get_type(_x, VALUE_PAIR)

and my understanding is that if the type is wrong, _x will be set to null.
    The properly casted pointer given by ptr, NULL on error."

However the code then goes ahead and indirects through vp without first
checking if vp is null, and there are lots of instances of this.

Is that intentional?  I guess if all you want is a segfault on type error
then it's OK (but in that case I don't see why you don't use
