It looks like a small issue with GCC 5.2 and -Os. The function that's
being called has the signature
xorbuf(byte* out, const byte* in, const byte* mask, size_t len);
When I examine frame 0 at the crash site, it looks like 'in' and 'len'
are the same value (but 'len' is only 120 bytes in the frame above).
I did not spot it sooner because GDB seems to ignore 'set output-radix 16'.
