That's my thought as well. Although we can argue that the C standard,
GCC, valgrind, etc. are all faulty, possibly the C standard etc. won't
change (after all, there is a performance advantage to GCC's current
behavior) and our code would continue to be over the edge.
We don't know the nature of the GCC issue, so we cannot work around it
reliably. The most likely explanation is that Address Sanitizer does
not account for a valid GCC optimization.
