The error is related to UBSAN. There is at least one legitimate (but benign)
underlying issue. I'm chasing down a second instance of the BUILD_BUG.

Assuming all issues can be fixed, I think it'd make sense to keep the
BUILD_BUG, especially if it's teasing out actual weirdness, even if the
weirdness is benign.
