Hi folks,

When running our msan-instrumented simulation program, instead of a proper output I get the following error:

==12089==WARNING: MemorySanitizer: use-of-uninitialized-value
==12089==WARNING: Can't read from symbolizer at fd 14
/pds/opt/llvm/bin/llvm-symbolizer: symbol lookup error: /pds/opt/libcxx-20151121-r253770-clang-msan/lib/libc++abi.so.1: undefined symbol: __msan_origin_tls
==12089==WARNING: external symbolizer didn't start up correctly!

My setup for using the memory sanitizer is as follows:
- compile libc++/libc++abi with -fsanitize=memory
- compile test program with normal (=uninstrumented) LLVM/Clang installation using -fsanitize=memory
- put instrumented libcxx/libcxxabi library dirs into LD_LIBRARY_PATH
- run program

Any idea what I am doing wrong? Thanks a lot in advance!
