Before sending my mail, I checked that gc6.0alpha6 fails too.  It too seg
faults in the same place (at `deferred = *limit', line 654 in mark.c).
But I didn't notice that it was using GC_SysVGetDataStart();
it looks like it is failing for a different reason.

I found a work-around: compile with `-O0'.
