Anybody around who can help me to track this down and find a fix? We've
just fixed a very similar segfault issue in gnutls 3.0.0 related to
AES-NI and alignment issues. Please have a look at this commit:;a=commitdiff;h=d21285196611811120ff1ba41e64f716f244f3d8

I can try to give backtraces or whatever we need.
