Date: Wed, 23 Jul 2014 20:04:05 -0400 From: Rich Felker <dalias@...c.org> To: musl@...ts.openwall.com Subject: musl firsts Random fun list I thought we could compile for promotional material (maybe use in future talks, website, etc.): features that musl had before any of the competitors. A few to start it off, in roughly chronological order: - TCB shadow passwords - Bcrypt in libc crypt - Safe and working thread cancellation - Correctly-rounded sqrt on 32-bit x86 - AS-safe and fail-safe dynamic TLS - VSDO on 32-bit x86 - Link-local address scope ids in hosts file - Using link-local addresses for nameservers in resolv.conf - OpenRISC 1000 (or1k) port in upstream I can think of a lot of smaller things too that are more like bugfixes and probably not worth mentioning, like AS-safety of various functions that are required to be AS-safe but that are broken in most libcs. Additions to the list are welcome. Rich
