Bug #43298 segfault with long class names supplied to stream_wrapper_register/class_exists

stream_wrapper_register() crashes when it gets a very long class name string passed. A lot of (all?) other functions which accept a class name as an argument have the same problem (for example: is_subclass_of(), get_class_vars(), class_exists(), property_exists(), get_class_methods()...)
This was originally from (which only mentions stream_wrapper_register)

I guess the fix has to be somewhere in zend_str_tolower_copy(), but I don't quite understand what is actually causing the segfault.

Reproduce code:
php -r 'var_dump(stream_wrapper_register("something", str_repeat("a", 10000000)));'
php -r 'var_dump(class_exists(str_repeat("a", 10000000)));'

Expected result:

Actual result:
Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

Please do not submit the same bug more than once. An existing
bug report already describes this very problem. Even if you feel
that your issue is somewhat different, the resolution is likely
to be the same. 

Thank you for your interest in PHP.
