            Bug ID: 17377
           Summary: MemorySanitizer false positive in module destructors
           Product: compiler-rt
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P
         Component: compiler-rt
          Assignee: unassignedbugs at nondot.org
          Reporter: eugeni.stepanov at gmail.com

$ cat 1.cc
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
class A {
    ~A() {
        if (this)

A a;

void f(long x) {

int main(void) {
    long  x;
    long * volatile p = &x;
    return 0;    

$ ./build/bin/clang++ -fsanitize=memory 1.cc -o 1 -O0 -g

The cause is obvious: module destructors get stale argument shadow due to being
called from (uninstrumented) libc.
