Re: MinGW ld from msys2 crashes on Wine when linking MinGW xz, valgrind reports "Invalid read of size 4"

Hi Nick,

Thank you very much for your reply!

I just retested with the same ld version (2.25.1) with a updated Wine
version (wine-1.7.53-859-g6ec39dd (Staging)) as well as updated msys2
version ( MINGW32_NT-5.1  2.3.0(0.290/5/3) 2015-10-20 10:21 i686 Msys
), I can confirm it still crashes in the same way.

I'm glad to test the development version, it would take me some time
to build binutils itself. I'll report a bug later when I successfully
reproduce it with newer binutils.

I can't reproduce it with small test case right now, I'll start from
the large test case and investigate further, if there is any hints how
to create a small test case from large test case that would be great
