In function locale_get_keywords:

PHP_FUNCTION( locale_get_keywords )
    UEnumeration*   e        = NULL;
    UErrorCode      status   = U_ZERO_ERROR;


    /* Get the keywords */
    e = uloc_openKeywords( loc_name, &status );  // crash here when loc_name larger than 2Gb
    if( e != NULL )


If "loc_name" is larger than 2Gb PHP 7 will crash.

Test script:
    ini_set('memory_limit', -1);
    $str = str_repeat('a', 0x8ff00000);

Expected result:
No crash.

Actual result:
