At https://github.com/mysql/mysql-server/blob/5.7/sql/sql_udf.cc#L187

The 3rd argument is non-NULL
The 4th argument is NULL

if (init_read_record(&read_record_info, new_thd, table, NULL, 1, 1, FALSE)) {

In function init_read_record at https://github.com/mysql/mysql-server/blob/5.7/sql/records.cc#L192

bool init_read_record(READ_RECORD *info,THD *thd,
                      TABLE *table, QEP_TAB *qep_tab,
		      int use_record_cache, bool print_error, 
                      bool disable_rr_cache)
  int error= 0;
  IO_CACHE *tempfile;

  DBUG_ASSERT(!(table && qep_tab));   // --> this will fail because at the above call site, table is non-null but qep_tab is null.
  if (!table)
    table= qep_tab->table();  // --> table is non-null, gep_table is null, thus an null pointer exception may happen here.

How to repeat:
As shown in the description part.
