Not that I'm aware; but if it gets this 'obvious' case wrong, I worry
what else it gets wrong.

At the very least we should get this fixed and compile a kernel with the
fixed compiler to see what (if anything) changes in the generated code
and analyse the changes (if any) to make sure we were ok (or not).

I mean; yes that example is UB, but the result is also clearly batshit
insane.
