I've updated https://github.com/ivmai/bdwgc/tree/gc-7_2-hotfix-2 branch by adding a fix preventing null pointer dereference in a rare case of out-of-memory (this bug has been recently discovered by Dmitry Kuteynikov using a static analysis tool).
Patch applied: https://github.com/ivmai/bdwgc/commit/0ac7a655aba6c7e1d43ad2262e4c556879e89827
