Adding ATTRIBUTE_NONNULL _is_ the API change I was referring to - it
simplifies the implementation, and puts a contract on the caller to not
pass NULL.  We can always remove it later (and re-instate the explicit
null check in the implementation) if we find a reason to, since the
function is internal.
