I don't have the exact toolchain, but I was able to get somewhat close
and may have found a smoking gun.  0x4d in my build is in the general
vicinity of "sig_sicodes[sig].limit" in known_siginfo_layout().  This
lines up with the register state from the log, e.g. RDI=0500104d8,
which is the mask generated by sig_specific_sicodes.  From what I can
tell, @sig is never bounds checked.  If the compiler generated an AND
instruction to compare against sig_specific_sicodes then that could
resolve true with any arbitrary value that happened to collide with
sig_specific_sicodes and result in an out-of-bounds access to
@sig_sicodes.  siginfo_layout() for example explicitly checks @sig
before indexing @sig_sicode, e.g. "sig < ARRAY_SIZE(sig_sicodes)".

Maybe this?
