Supplying a large negative number as the second parameter to round() reliably produces a segmentation fault.  Tested on Linux with both v7.0.0 and v5.6.16.  This issue appears to only affect 64-bit builds.

Due to the limited range of values which cause a crash I do not believe this issue is exploitable.  However given the nature of the crash (out of bounds read) I am classifying this as "security" just in case.  I'll let you smart people make that call.

Here's some gdb output that may be helpful to you...
(gdb) r -r 'echo round(1.0, -2147483648);'

Thanks for the report. Bug confirmed. But i don't think it is a security issue.

The Linux pow() function seems to be sensitive to the overflowed values. Please check the patch below (against 7.0)

Opening to public, this is not security related

Ups, i meant abs(), not pow() is the issue.

when building with -O3 and Profile-Guided Optimization (make prof-gen; <run-php-code>; make prof-clean; make prof-use" this crash comes back

add -fwrapv to CCFLAGS and nothing else changed and it's fixed

in fact it happens only with profile-guided-optimization, otherwise the flags below without -fwrapv don't have this crash
