When I run geekbench_x86_64 --compute OpenCL on my Linux machine, segmentation fault occurs when the face detection test begins. I run Geekbench 4.2.3 on Manjaro 64-bit kernel 4.14.54-1 with all latest updates. I have the package beignet v1.3.2-2 and llvm-libs v6.0.0-4. My CPU is an Intel Core i5 3317U with an integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000. Here is my Geekbench output after running the command:

Geekbench 4.2.3 Tryout :

Geekbench 4 is in tryout mode.

Geekbench 4 requires an active Internet conn....

I noticed that the segfault is logged by dmesg. Here is what was logged in dmesg:

geekbench_x86_6[2079]: segfault at 7fff14c67fd8 ip 00007f889733d52a sp 00007fff14c67fe0 error 6 in[7f8896996000+394a000]

Is there a workaround or could you fix it to be able to fully run the compute benchmark on my machine? The CPU benchmark fully runs without any issue.
