The lack of proper care around use of macro arguments in LTTNG_OPTIONAL_GET
allowed this code to compile, but caused the following issue (manually
replacing "optional" argument with the a

Using LTTNG_OPTIONAL_GET(&stream->ongoing_rotation)->next_trace_chunk


 #define LTTNG_OPTIONAL_GET(optional)                   \
         ({                                             \
               assert(optional.is_set);                 \
               optional.value;                          \

translates to:


The issue here is the assert(), which just checks that the address
is not NULL, when it should actually check that the value is set.

The prior commit fixing optional.h to add proper parentheses to the
macro rightfully fails to compile this code. Fix the erroneous user.
