The code in question does this:

        if (i<0) return;
        if ((event_data[i].mmap)) {

  [New LWP 10526]
  Core was generated by `./perf_fuzzer -t OCIRMQWPpAi -r 1392938876'.
  Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation fault.
  #0  0x0041efab in __memset_sse2 ()
  (gdb) bt
  #0  0x0041efab in __memset_sse2 ()
  #1  0x004017ec in trash_random_mmap () at perf_fuzzer.c:808
  #2  main (argc=<optimized out>, argv=<optimized out>) at perf_fuzzer.c:1604

So rbp is set by the imul below, it is the offset into the
event_data[i] array where the elements have size of 0x120

  Dump of assembler code for function __memset_sse2:

   0x0041e710 <+0>:     cmp    $0x1,%rdx
   0x0041e714 <+4>:     mov    %rdi,%rax

   0x0041e719 <+9>:     mov    %sil,(%rdi)

and as far as I can tell nothing touches rbp again until the segfault.
Nothing in _memset_sse2 does as far as I can tell.
