I presume like the other bug tracker this is due to the recent update to glibc 2.24, though I can't find any information on how to rectify it.

As far as I understand this is technically an ASan bug and there is supposed to be a patch ready that is fixing the problem. We could try that one.

Okay, I am taking this for 6.5a3-hardened as-is assuming it solves the problem. Please reopen if that's wrong. commit 971399e21ee26922defb9893f188d435ebf62a0c has the fix.

And commit 8039dd7759df72fc2cb316004718daa03a665aee has a fixup to take care of Selfrando's changed install path.

What prevented you from using the latest bug-fix release of GCC 5.x on all alphas?
