-fstack-protector on OpenBSD

 Description  « Hide
Code compiled with stack protection fails to link on OpenBSD atm. pcc should use the functions provided as part of OpenBSD's libc, __guard and __stack_smash_handler. I don't really know what to do about __stack_chk_canary, though.

Have you verified that it works with the OpenBSD routines or must we rewrite something?
I\m not sure how this code works.

Yes, protection against a simple testcase works:

#include <stdio.h>


        char a[10];


(with input > 10 characters). One would only have to add support for printing the function name to the syslog (__stack_smash_handler() can take the function name as first argument).

except that the patch is wrong, please use

#ifdef os_openbsd

so that pcc can be cross-compiled correctly..

(in the long term, I would like to see such #ifdef removed from ccom,
perhaps replaced by a configure variable)

Thanks, added (with the ifdef name change from Iain Hibbert).
