It's my long-term goal to support compiling musl itself with stack protector, but this is dependent on groundwork in two areas: 1. There needs to be a way to force stack protector off in at least a few files which are needed for early initialization, before the canary is available. This needs build system support and call tree analysis of what files need such special handling. 2. Since the canary is stored at a fixed offset from the thread pointer, the thread pointer must always be initialized when ssp is used. This is handled correctly now (modulo one gcc bug) for apps and libs that use ssp, but not for libc-internal use. In the 1.1 series I plan to make the thread pointer always-initialized. I expect the resolution of this issue somewhere in the early to mid 1.1 series. For what it's worth, we're no worse than glibc in this regard right now, and hope to be better in the future. Rich
