Slashdot reports that Microsoft have come up with something they call "checked C". It claims to prevent a wide variety of memory & pointer bugs, using a mix of compile-time and run-time checks, at moderate overheads. Implementation is as extensions to Clang so it might be hard to apply to the kernel which I think has some GNU-isms. Perhaps still worth a look? Paper describing it is at: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/research/publication/checkedc-making-c-safe-by-extension/ Code is at: https://github.com/Microsoft/checkedc
