Then frankly I suspect this is a KASAN bug.

These two instructions:
>>   11:   4d 85 ff                test   %r15,%r15
>>   14:   0f 84 de 01 00 00       je     0x1f8

Should prevent a NULL %r15 value from ever reaching the trapping
instruction.

What other horrible things does KASAN do to the machine code?
