Hi Both,

     see commit 97b4903b4b88f22c1bd11760f107852c63f9db40

    src/plugins/SHA2Plugin/SHA2Plugin.c as per CryptographyPlugins-eem.24

    Fix crashes in primitiveSHA256ProcessBufferUpdatingHash when compiling
    Clang on x86_64 due to SSE instructions which require 128-bit stack

I need to know about any other such crashes pronto.
