Consider the following snippet:

var src *os.File
dst, _ := os.Create("/tmp/file")
fmt.Println(io.Copy(dst, src))

On go1.14, this prints:

0 invalid argument

On go1.15, this panics with:

panic: runtime error: invalid memory address or nil pointer dereference
[signal SIGSEGV: segmentation violation code=0x1 addr=0x0 pc=0x490cc1]

goroutine 1 [running]:
os.(*File).readFrom(0xc000102018, 0x4dddc0, 0x0, 0x54da28, 0x1000000000000, 0x7f1f86dbcfe8, 0xc0000a0e70)
