It really appears to be an optimization bug in gcc-8. Considering that
bogus compilers are released in the wild, we can hardly justify using
the compiler feature that triggers the bogus behavior, even if it gets
fixed in the future.

I've prepared a patch that changes the way the __rseq_abi fields are
passed to the inline asm. I pass the address of the __rseq_abi TLS
as a register input operand rather than each individual field as "m"
operand.

I will submit it in a separate thread.

By the way, it affects both x86-32 (building with gcc-8 -m32) and x86-64.

Thanks,

Mathieu
