The segfault happens sporadically, usually when reading large amounts of data. The backtrace is instructive:

#0  php_mysqlnd_rowp_read_text_protocol_aux (row_buffer=<optimized out>, 
    fields=<optimized out>, field_count=<optimized out>, fields_metadata=0x7fa0dd9c5e20, 
    as_int_or_float=1 '\001', stats=0x7fa0dd95c460)
    at /usr/src/builddir/ext/mysqlnd/mysqlnd_wireprotocol.c:1674
#1  0x00007fa0d97a6239 in php_mysqlnd_result_buffered_zval_fetch_row_pub (
    result=<optimized out>, param=0x7fa0d9c146b0, flags=2, 
    fetched_anything=0x7ffebc5139a7 "")
    at /usr/src/builddir/ext/mysqlnd/mysqlnd_result.c:1078
#2  0x00007fa0d97a6705 in php_mysqlnd_res_fetch_into_pub (result=0x7fa0dd9c4500, flags=2, 
    return_value=0x7fa0d9c146b0, extension=MYSQLND_MYSQLI)
    at /usr/src/builddir/ext/mysqlnd/mysqlnd_result.c:1727
#3  0x00007fa0cfd044e7 in php_mysqli_fetch_into_hash (execute_data=0x7ffebc5138e0, 
    return_value=0x7fa0d9c146b0, override_flags=0, into_object=0)
    at /usr/src/builddir/ext/mysqli/mysqli.c:1275
#4  0x00007fa0dc0b7726 in ZEND_DO_FCALL_SPEC_HANDLER ()
    at /usr/src/builddir/Zend/zend_vm_execute.h:842

Which resolves to the second line of this code fragment of ext/mysqlnd/mysqlnd_wireprotocol.c: 

            if (as_int_or_float && perm_bind.php_type == IS_LONG) {
                zend_uchar save = *(p + len);
                /* We have to make it ASCIIZ temporarily */
                *(p + len) = '\0';

So when a row ends with a long (or a float), this writes past the end of the row_buffer. As the old value is restored later on in this function, this is usually not a problem. Unless of course it happens to access unmapped address space.

Test script:
This bug seems rather impossible to reproduce deterministically, sorry!
