The current hypothesis is that this bug is not related to clang (there
are similar crashes with gcc as well).
We use unreleased versions of clang as we frequently need recent
fixes/features. And then later nobody usually has time to update, if
things work.
Based on offline discussion with Marco, we probably need to update
KMSAN and KASAN to 11 release when it's released.
