Hi, when I am running the gcc testsuite in $builddir/gcc then
$ make check-gcc RUNTESTFLAGS='ubsan.exp'
comes up with spurious fails.

This was discussed before, and the suspicion was that it was a linux
kernel bug.  There were multiple kernel fixes pointed at, it wasn't
clear which one was required to fix it.

I have Ubuntu 16.04 LTS on my laptop, and I see the problem.  I can't
run the ubsan testsuites with -j factor greater than one and get
reproducible results.  There may also be other ways to trigger the problem.

See for instance the thread
    https://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc/2016-07/msg00117.html
The first message in the thread from Andrew Pinski mentions that the log
output is corrupted from apparent buffer overflow.

I have "Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS".

Asking this at DejaGNU's, I got the following pointer:

AFAIU there is a problem separating stdout and stderr?
