You can't pass NULL since it's unconditionally written to, but you can
pass the address of a dummy int instead. If you're okay with using a
GNU extension, you can use a statement expression to do that easily,
like this:

#define lua_resume(a,b) ({int nres; lua_resume(a, NULL, b, &nres); })

By the way, I'm slightly concerned that mod_lua always ignores the
stack after calling lua_resume, but that new #define is no worse than
the code that it was using before for Lua 5.3 and below.
