In https://reviews.llvm.org/D67556, David Stenberg gives an example of how the
location of a parameter in a caller can escape and be clobbered by the callee.
In this case, the debugger may print a misleading description for the parameter
when stopped in the callee.

The setup is roughly:

void caller() {
  int local = 0;

void callee(int p) {
  *escaped_ptr_to_local = 1;
  // print 'p' in the debugger: will show '1' instead of '0'.
