I can reproduce with `make optflags="-DFIBER_USE_NATIVE=0 -O0" test-all TESTOPTS="$(git rev-parse --show-cdup)/test/ruby/test_io.rb"` on my Ubuntu 17.10, glibc 2.24-12.

Here is a reduced code.
This code don't stop with SIGINT (CTRL+C) so I had to use SIGKILL.

```
1000.times do |i|
  p i
  r, w = IO.pipe
  w.puts "foo"
  w.close
  rt = Thread.new do
    r.each_char.next
    r.close
  end
  Thread.new {}.join # <= stuck
  rt.join
end
```

GDB showed ALLOCATE_STACK() had entered in infinity loop at get_cached_stack(), static function of glibc.
I guess `stack_cache` local variable of allocatestack.c of glibc got corrupted.

```

I've reproduced it with ruby_2_4, ruby_2_3 and ruby_2_2.
