Thanks. Yes, I can reproduce, and the longer I keep digging I start
wondering why we have local-bounds at all.

It appears that local-bounds finds a tiny subset of the issues that
KASAN finds:

http://lists.llvm.org/pipermail/cfe-commits/Week-of-Mon-20131021/091536.html
http://llvm.org/viewvc/llvm-project?view=revision&revision=193205

fsanitize=undefined also does not include local-bounds:

https://clang.llvm.org/docs/UndefinedBehaviorSanitizer.html#available-checks

And the reason is that we do want to enable KASAN and UBSAN together;
but local-bounds is useless overhead if we already have KASAN.

I'm inclined to say that what you propose is reasonable (but the commit
message needs to be more detailed explaining the relationship with
KASAN) -- but I have no idea if this is going to break somebody's
usecase (e.g. find some OOB bugs, but without KASAN -- but then why not
use KASAN?!)

I'll ask some more people on LLVM side.

Thanks,
-- Marco
