Funtion locale_get_keywords():

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


        	while( ( kw_key = uenum_next( e, &kw_key_len, &status ) ) != NULL ){
    		kw_value_len = 100;
			kw_value_str = zend_string_alloc(kw_value_len, 0);

			/* Get the keyword value for each keyword */
			kw_value_len=uloc_getKeywordValue( loc_name, kw_key, ZSTR_VAL(kw_value_str), kw_value_len, &status );  // (1) crash in this call
			if (status == U_BUFFER_OVERFLOW_ERROR) {


When passing large keyword value in locale string, this function causes PHP 7 to crash.

Test script:
    ini_set('memory_limit', -1);
    $str = str_repeat('test', 0x3fffffff);
    $keywords_arr = locale_get_keywords("de_DE@currency=EUR;collation=$str");

Expected result:
No crash.

Actual result:
