Issue #17052 has been updated by vo.x (Vit Ondruch).

Subject changed from Ruby with LTO enabled on {aarch64,ppc64le} architectures. to Ruby with LTO enabled has issues with SIGSEGV handler

Actually, the platform might not matter. It might fail just randomly, because now I have caught the same issue also on x86_64.

Bug #17052: Ruby with LTO enabled has issues with SIGSEGV handler

----------------------------------------
Fedora aims to enable link time optimization (LTO) of packages in next release. The specific changes in configuration options are available here [1]. Since that time, I observe following errors [2] at least on {aarch64,ppc64le} (and possibly also other architectures):

When I raised the issue on fedora-devel ML [3], there was suggestion that it might happen when signal handler modifies any global variable. Now I am not sure if that is the case. Can somebody confirm? Or investigate/fix this, please?
