Clang just allows to be more selective, but ultimately we want to
cover as many bug-classes as possible. There is little point in giving
up checks with Clang just because GCC doesn't implement them. If there
are other valid reasons to give it up, that's fine, but so far it
seems we never ran into the issue you ran into -- which is also a bit
odd, because I do see in the instrumentation passes that
fsanitize=bounds emits traps sometimes.

Does -fno-sanitize-trap=bounds help?
