libswscale crash with Neon - aarch64

Hi there, this is my first post so please bare with me :)
I'm currently in the process of debugging a ffmpeg crash and I'm reaching out for some tips how to approach this. Reproducing the steps may be quite involved as the crash happens in the application which depends on ffmpeg library (libswscale). This is a custom build of Blender animation package (build on Aarch64) and the crash happens if ffmpeg is configured with Neon instructions. Here is the stack trace:

Thread 1 "blender" received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

Linux nano 4.9.140-tegra 2020 aarch64

If I reconfigure ffmpeg and disable Neon all works great.
I think my question at this point would be if anybody has seen similar issue in the past? Or could advise on the best way to narrow down the problem.

Thank you,

Is the issue reproducible with ffmpeg (the application)?

Please reopen this ticket if you can explain how we can reproduce the issue.

Reproduced on arm64.

Falls steadily if input/output stride is negative when converting YUV -> BGRA

Error is in libswscale/aarch64/yuv2rgb_neon.S around line 191
When padding is negative, pointer to the next line flies into space.

Please explain how we can reproduce the issue.

They appear to be using for either input or output, a buffer which will be scanned from bottom to top. This appears to be using a pointer to the beginning of the last scanline, and a negative row stride increment so it steps backwards. Cheeky hack.
