tar containing the C source, plus .ll and .bc files from running through
bugpoint process

bash-4.2$ clang -v
clang version 6.0.0 (tags/RELEASE_600/final)
RedHat 7.4
x86 (replicated on aarch64)

Attached .tar contains:
C code:
cell.h cell_split.c main.c memswap.h

To compile the (crashing code) you just need
clang -O1 cell_split.c main.c
-O2 and -O3 also result in a seg fault.

Code runs correctly with -O0 (program runs, no output is correct). Code also
works with gcc8 at all optimisation levels.

Adding a __sync_synchronize() statement to memswap.h line 60 and compiling with
-std=gnu99 causes the program to run correctly at all optimisation levels we
tested (-O3/-Ofast/-O2/-O1/-O0), however this fence should not be needed for
this example.

I ran bugpoint -llc-safe -O3 cell_split.ll main.ll on the .ll files created by
