There was this PR that seems code finished but triggering a suspected LLVM bug. It occurs on the gnux32 target. I wonder if any one's able to give it a look and find a way to fix it or work around it...

oh!! sorry i'm not familiar with this, but if there any way to ask bors to test it on gnux32?

A dist-various-2 run reveals that the problem is still there :(
