Passing a function invoked with named arguments as an argument to a function results in PHP crashing with a segmentation fault.

Test script:
thekid@Surface:~/bin/php$ ./sapi/cli/php -r 'function p($arg) { echo $arg, "\n"; } p(htmlentities("The < character is encoded as &lt;", do
uble_encode: false));'
Segmentation fault

thekid@Surface:~/bin/php$ ./sapi/cli/php -v

Bug #80096 (Segmentation fault with named arguments)
function println($arg) {
  echo $arg, "\n";

println(htmlentities("The < character is encoded as &lt;", double_encode: false));
The &lt; character is encoded as &lt;
 [2020-09-12 13:14 UTC]
This does not occur if instead of htmlentities, a userland function is used:

thekid@Surface:~/bin/php$ ./sapi/cli/php -r 'function html($string, $flags= 2, $double= true) { return htmlentities($string, $flags, null, $double); } function p($arg) { echo $arg, "\n"; } p(html("The < character is encoded as &lt;", double: false));'
The &lt; character is encoded as &lt;
