            Bug ID: 3392445
           Summary: Stack under flow in function ieee_shr at source file
           Product: NASM
           Version: 2.13.xx
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: OPEN
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Medium
         Component: Assembler

Stack underflow in function ieee_shr at source file asm/float.c. 
Tested on nasm-2.13.02rc2 with address-sanitizer on 0 4.4.0-31-generic
#50~14.04.1-Ubuntu SMP 

Runing command: nasm -felf64 poc

Function to_float at Line 836 in asm/float.c:

836: ieee_shr(mant, shift); 
/*mant is defined at line 716 with size MANT_LIMBS = 6:  fp_limb
shift is an integer*/ 

Function ieee_shr at line 612 in asm/float.c access mant:
612: n = mant[MANT_LIMBS-1-offs] >> sr;
 /* offs = shift / 32 */

When shift is larger than 224, MANT_LIMBS-1-offs will be less than zero, and
thus mant is accessed with under-bound index. 

We attach the PoC to trigger this defect with nasm compiled with
Address-Sanitizer and display the outout of Sanitizer as follows:
