Sorry I was a bit terse. coreutils/gnulib should currently be compiled with
  -D_STRING_ARCH_unaligned=0 -D_STRING_INLINE_unaligned=0
when using UBSAN, to use only alignment portable code.
Methods for avoiding false UBSAN warnings automatically are discussed below...

Oh interesting. I see details in:
https://sourceware.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=19462
There it suggests that _STRING_ARCH_unaligned is now internal
to glibc and _STRING_INLINE_unaligned is the newer stable equivalent.
Attached patch to do this for coreutils is attached.

We can explicitly avoid the UBSAN warnings with something like:
http://git.sv.gnu.org/gitweb/?p=coreutils.git;a=commitdiff;h=v8.23-80-g5760532
which might be acceptable given the few places it matters.
That's a bit of a big hammer though, defining away all of UBSAN for those routines.

Alternatively we might define the non-portable faster path away,
if we could detect we where compiling in UBSAN mode.
That's easy enough for -fsanitize=address, though it doesn't
look like there is currently a way to detect -fsanitize=undefined?
http://stackoverflow.com/q/39371798/4421

Another approach would be to support ../configure --with-asan --with-ubsan
which would define things appropriately.

cheers,
Pádraig.

Yes. Translating this for non-experts: the problem here is a bug in the=20
bug-finding procedure, not a bug in GNU coreutils or in Gnulib.

Recent glibc (since 2016-02-18) does not define _STRING_ARCH_unaligned, w=
hich=20
means that this code in gnulib md5.c etc. is no longer exercised on recen=
t=20
platforms. So in some sense the originally-reported bug is already fixed =
(via an=20
unexpected glibc change), though this does mean Gnulib md5 etc. is now sl=
ower on=20
x86-64 etc., which is a performance bug on newer platforms. If we fix the=
=20
performance bug I suppose we'll start getting false alarms from UBSAN aga=
in.

There is some support at least for catering
for architectures where unaligned access is significant.
So for UBSAN we should probably build with
_STRING_ARCH_unaligned defined globally
to avoid warning for the cases we already handle.

Dear all,

The following execution is flagged by UBSAN as undefined behaviour:

$ echo 0 > a; printf "%0.s0" {1..58} >> a
$ ./sort -R a

UBSAN says:
../lib/md5.c:371:7: runtime error: load of misaligned address =
0x7ffdfd45a10d for type 'const uint32_t', which requires 4 byte =
alignment=20

So, the root cause might actually be in GNULIB. The bug was found with =
AFLFast, a fork of AFL.

Best regards,
- Marcel=
