Backport 7937, BUG: Guard against buggy comparisons in generic quicksort. #7953
Generic types may have buggy comparison operators in which case the sentinal values in quicksort cannot be counted on to keep the pointers from running off the ends of the array. The solution here is to explicitly check that the pointers are in bounds when sorting generic types. Closes #7934.
