Hi there,

I found a stack-overflow in `sapi/cli/php`.

- Compiler : clang13, --enable-address-sanitizer

AddressSanitizer report:

==176610==ERROR: AddressSanitizer: stack-overflow on address 0x7ffe0e2cbc48 (pc 0x00000061bce8 bp 0x7ffe0e2cc490 sp 0x7ffe0e2cbc50 T0)

Test script:

class StreamWrapper {
    public $context;
    public function url_stat($path, $flags) {
$pa4h = str_replace('test://', 'file://', $path);
        if (STREAM_URL_STAT_QUIET) {
    return @stat($path); } else {
            return stat($path);

stream_wrapper_register('test', StreamWrapper::class);
try {
    require_once 'doesnt_exist.php';
} catch (Exception $e) {
    echo $e->getMessage(), "\n";

This is infinite recursion, since url_stat() calls stat() which
calls url_stat() and so on.  This is not a security issue, since
that code always exhibits this behavior (and as such would be
malicious); see also our security classification[1].

Other than that, this is a duplicate of bug #64196.
