The worker process dies when trying to connect to a service through nginx reverse_proxy. No data is served.
This function is working normally on x86_64.
Version 1.6.2 doesn't have this bug.

Do configure options differ between 1.6.2 and 1.6.3 versions in your builds?
Do you cross-built nginx on arm?
I wonder because you don't have "built by <compiler>" line in 'nginx -V',
e.g.: built by gcc 4.9.1 (Ubuntu 4.9.1-1ubuntu2~14.04.3)

What do you have in your debug error.log when the worker process dies?
See for more details.

I solved it by recompiling nginx using the PKGBUILD from the ALARM repo.

uname -a

Linux webpi 3.12.35-1-ARCH #1 PREEMPT Tue Dec 23 07:14:51 MST 2014 armv6l GNU/Linux

nginx -V

nginx version: nginx/1.6.3
TLS SNI support enabled

This was solved by adding -fPIE -pie as build flags:
I must admit that I don't really know what that does. I tried to enable debugging but that also solves the bug.

If you want to reproduce this make sure the hardening-wrapper package isn't installed when building nginx because that also solves this.
GCC Version used: 4.9.2 on a Raspberry Pi with ArchLinuxARM

So this can probably be closed.
