That is for Andrew/Aldy to answer.
All I can say is that get_tree_range is a non-static member function
of range_query and therefore it needs non-NULL query object.

But I must say I wonder if all this pain is worth it, if it wouldn't
be easier to keep cfun->x_range_query NULL most of the time and use
ATTRIBUTE_RETURNS_NONNULL inline range_query *
get_range_query (const struct function *fun)
  return fun->x_range_query ? fun->x_range_query : &global_ranges;

(of course, the function then would need to be in some header
where global_ranges is declared).
