Short summary:
Game Penumbra overture (32bit running on arch 64 bit) crashes on regular mesa packages.
Recompiling lib32-mesa without -O2 in CFLAGS fixes it.

Please see this mesa bug report for full details, I won't duplicate everything here

Opened another bug here as it might be a compiler bug or somehow only applicable to arch only as Timothy Arceri has not been able to replicate it yet.

Package versions:
gcc 8.2.1+20181127-1
mesa 18.3.3-1 and lots of other versions from git and packages
This task depends upon

Have you tried to determine which optimization flag or flags enabled by 02 is the cause of the issue?

loqs: Didn't think of that. I'll try

Well this is getting interesting now...
I've generated the optimization settings for optimization levels 1 and 2 as follows:
gcc -Q -m32 -O1 --help=optimizers
gcc -Q -m32 -O2 --help=optimizers

I've diffed the outputs and according to it
export CFLAGS="

should be identical to just -O2, but when compiled with these options, the crash won't happen...
gcc manual says "Not all optimizations are controlled directly by a flag. Only optimizations that have a flag are listed in this section."
so maybe -O2 still does something different?

The difference between the disassembly of bad and good, in function amdgpu_bo_map:

bad (compiled with -O2):
2b4827: e8 b4 f7 ff ff call 2b3fe0 <amdgpu_bo_wait>
2b482c: 83 c4 10 add $0x10,%esp
2b482f: e8 5c b4 55 00 call 80fc90 <os_time_get_nano>
2b4834: 89 44 24 18 mov %eax,0x18(%esp)
2b4838: 89 54 24 1c mov %edx,0x1c(%esp)
2b483c: 8b 46 54 mov 0x54(%esi),%eax
2b483f: f3 0f 7e 4c 24 18 movq 0x18(%esp),%xmm1
2b4845: f3 0f 7e 80 04 02 00 movq 0x204(%eax),%xmm0
2b484c: 00
2b484d: 66 0f d4 c1 paddq %xmm1,%xmm0
2b4851: 66 0f fb 04 24 psubq (%esp),%xmm0
2b4856: 66 0f d6 80 04 02 00 movq %xmm0,0x204(%eax)
2b485d: 00
2b485e: 66 90 xchg %ax,%ax
2b4860: 8b 56 5c mov 0x5c(%esi),%edx
2b4863: 66 0f ef c0 pxor %xmm0,%xmm0

2b486e: 00
2b486f: 66 0f 7e c5 movd %xmm0,%ebp
2b4873: 85 d2 test %edx,%edx

segfault happens in psubq

good (compiled with the flags specified in previous message):
2b3ef7: e8 c4 f7 ff ff call 2b36c0 <amdgpu_bo_wait>
2b3efc: 83 c4 10 add $0x10,%esp
2b3eff: e8 0c bb 55 00 call 80fa10 <os_time_get_nano>
2b3f04: 8b 4e 54 mov 0x54(%esi),%ecx
2b3f07: 03 81 04 02 00 00 add 0x204(%ecx),%eax
2b3f0d: 13 91 08 02 00 00 adc 0x208(%ecx),%edx
2b3f13: 2b 04 24 sub (%esp),%eax
2b3f16: 1b 54 24 04 sbb 0x4(%esp),%edx
2b3f1a: 89 81 04 02 00 00 mov %eax,0x204(%ecx)
2b3f20: 89 91 08 02 00 00 mov %edx,0x208(%ecx)
2b3f26: 8d b4 26 00 00 00 00 lea 0x0(%esi,%eiz,1),%esi
2b3f2d: 8d 76 00 lea 0x0(%esi),%esi
2b3f30: 8b 56 5c mov 0x5c(%esi),%edx
2b3f33: c7 44 24 18 00 00 00 movl $0x0,0x18(%esp)
2b3f3a: 00
2b3f3b: c7 04 24 00 00 00 00 movl $0x0,(%esp)
2b3f42: c7 44 24 04 00 00 00 movl $0x0,0x4(%esp)
2b3f49: 00
2b3f4a: 85 d2 test %edx,%edx
So the difference seems to be the usage of these SSE instructions...
