Unfortunately I do not think Comparing between versions in
https://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs, it appears that -fsanitize-recover
is not configurable for folks still with GCC 4.x series, and this
patch is not very useful unless you disable the recovery for the
purpose of running our tests as you said X-<.
