SUMMARY: UndefinedBehaviorSanitizer:
implicit-signed-integer-truncation-or-sign-change sortsupport.c:60:9

ROOT CAUSE CODE

The root cause code and explanations are shown bellow (sortsupport.c:60). 

static int
comparison_shim(Datum x, Datum y, SortSupport ssup)
{
        SortShimExtra *extra = (SortShimExtra *) ssup->ssup_extra;
        Datum           result;

        extra->fcinfo.args[0].value = x;
        extra->fcinfo.args[1].value = y;

        /* just for paranoia's sake, we reset isnull each time */
        extra->fcinfo.isnull = false;

        result = FunctionCallInvoke(&extra->fcinfo);                   
<---------- the result value is usigned 64 bit

        /* Check for null result, since caller is clearly not expecting one
*/
        if (extra->fcinfo.isnull)
                elog(ERROR, "function %u returned NULL",
extra->flinfo.fn_oid);

        return result;                   <----------- the return value is
signed 32 bit
