Reduced testcase of the miscompilation

CloudABI is a runtime environment based on a subset of POSIX that allows for
strong sandboxing. CloudABI uses Clang as its C/C++ compiler with LLVM's
SafeStack enabled by default.

One of the lead developers of Bitcoin, Wladimir van der Laan, is currently
working on getting Bitcoin Core ported over to CloudABI:


In the process, he discovered that some of Bitcoin's unit tests tend to fail
when SafeStack is enabled. He observed this when using LLVM/Clang 4.0-rc2:


I've done some bisecting and discovered it's caused by SVN r274162:

275000 bad

296985 bad

Attached you can find a source file of a reduced test case that should build
both on CloudABI and non-CloudABI. When built with SafeStack enabled and -O2 or
higher set, it will call abort(). When built without SafeStack or when using
lower optimisation levels, it will print "O.K." and terminate successfully.

I will add this as a blocker for 4.0.
