New submission from Robert Kuska:

Original bug report at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1174037
Additional informations at Issue #20160

Note that this was reproduced not only with separate libffi package but also with libffi bundled in python.
Reproduced with Python 2.7.9 but same issue should exists also in 3.4.x.

Richard Henderson provided fix in original bug report at bugzilla (attached).
