Uploaded `bt all` log using core obtained from firefox on lldb
to Bug 273291.

And another person popped in for "+1" report there.

Note that ports tree is updated to commit
fb0373a15c107e3b50a5706d018aa35ad9892afc, including devel/glib20
update, and rebuilt updated ports built using poudriere.

Moreover, checked OPTIONS against default and found now-non-default
LIBPROXY is still set, and reversed it to off.
Now only difference from default is intentionally set PULSEAUDIO and
unset ALSA.

Now updating base to stable/14 ALPHA4 in conjunction with
cherry-picking timerfd-related fixes (include differential revisions on
phablicator). I wanted to cherry pick ZFS-related ones to avoid
deadlock on poudriere runs, but didn't do so yet as currently cannot
determine which to cherry pick (couldn't dig into prerequisites).

So the next test would be on the updated base. But I may be forced to
rebuild all pkgs by poudriere as of BRANCH variable change.
It would force me over 24 hours.
