The latest feature landing in mainline GCC for next year's GCC 7 stable release is -fsanitize-address-use-after-scope

The AddressSanitizer option for detecting use-after-scope cases has been supported by LLVM for months while now it's been added to GCC with this commit.

Great to see the sanitizers in both LLVM and GCC continuing to advance nearly in-step. This is just a minor addition on top of the tons of other C++17, back-end, debug/error message improvements, and other functionality queuing up for GCC 7.1 to be released as stable in H1'2017.
