Did you use the change from the PR, or apply it manually.  That looks like the error one would get if
only the type of locs_buf were changed, without changing to take the address in the reference.  That
is, without changing `(relocInfo*)locs_buf` to `(relocInfo*)&locs_buf`.  That second change is in the PR.
