Intel code uses the `ud2` illegal instruction for `__builtin_trap`, that is, as a way for the code to stop when some sort of error has been detected.

In your case I believe that you’re using your dispatch source incorrectly.  Specifically:

* You should hold on to a reference to `dispatchSource`.

* You need to `dispatch_resume` the source before it’ll do anything.
