Comment (by gk):

 We could get `-fwrapv` back for our debug builds if we switched to GCC 8.x
 (see: #27597). As a data point: I've been compiling (and using) some
 custom Tor Browser with GCC 8.x for a while now and did not run into any
 issues. Thus, we might consider 8.x sufficiently stable to switch to it in
 particular when preparing for eser68.
