This was exposed on PowerPC by commit bf76f73c5f65 ("powerpc: enable
UBSAN support") which is in Linus' tree as of this morning. The only
relevant change that made was in the compiler flags (I tested this by
building the file without that commit but with these new compiler flags:
-fsanitize=unreachable -fsanitize=vla-bound -fsanitize=null
-fsanitize=bool -fsanitize=enum -fsanitize=alignment
The preprocessed file is the same in both cases, but with these flags
the compiler errors.
