Wow, that looks exactly like what the bug is:

crc32c:
        .register       %g2, #scratch
        save    %sp, -176, %sp  !
        sethi   %hi(tfm), %g1   !, tmp121
        mov     %i2, %o2        ! length,
        ldx     [%g1+%lo(tfm)], %g2     ! tfm, tfm.0_4
        mov     %i1, %o1        ! address,
        lduw    [%g2], %g1      ! tfm.0_4->descsize, tfm.0_4->descsize
        add     %g1, 38, %g1    ! tfm.0_4->descsize,, tmp126
        srlx    %g1, 4, %g1     ! tmp126,, tmp127
        sllx    %g1, 4, %g1     ! tmp127,, tmp128
        sub     %sp, %g1, %sp   !, tmp128,
        add     %sp, 2230, %i5  !,, tmp130

Ok, %i5 holds the stack address of the shash context:

 ...
        return  %i7+8
         lduw   [%o5+16], %o0   ! MEM[(u32 *)__shash_desc.1_10 + 16B],

'return' deallocates the stack frame plus the register window, and at
the same time does a delayed control transfer to "%i7 + 8".  So in the
branch delay slot instruction %i5 becomes %o5.

And here we are accessing deallocated stack memory in the delay slot.

I'm using gcc-6.3.0 here.

And indeed the following patch makes the problem go away:
