0x0000000103f05db0, where the fault happens.  I think it's a libffi stub,
and I think its page permissions are not correctly set.

But let's see.

What I would do is, at

> 54	  (*real_main) (args);

disassemble the call instruction, it's probably  call ($rax)  or somesuch.
look in $rax with

p $rax

and disassemble from the address that's in there.
