-Mchkptr doesn't allow passing null optional values

I see this was discussed previously here: Bug in nvfortran with -Mchkptr for unallocated optional arguments?

There was some discussion about adding a sub-option but it seems it never went anywhere, could we revive it?

I am using this feature where null pointers can be passed to optional values and be considered not present when interfacing C and Fortran code. I can pass null pointers to signify that an optional value is not present.


I don’t remember us doing anything with the initial request but since we now have two, I added an RFE, TPR #34981.

I’m not sure engineering will take it up, but doesn’t hurt to ask.
