It's now hanging (I guess 'looping' is a more accurate description)
at the exact same place in the tests [ lib/Benchmark ].

I would normally assume a loop like this was different from a memory
leak, but I have no details of what you referred to.

Looking at that test script, I have no idea how to debug it.  It
worked in 5.24 on the haswell at the end of May / beginning of June.
Oh, and I don't have gdb or strace in /tools on this build.

Separate reply about gcc tests will follow.
