Subject: Re: Static linking is broken after creation of DT_TEXTREL segment

I've tested and both "-fno-pie" and "-static" are not compatible with some
gcc and clang sanitizers, so these solutions are bad.

Found right solution in gmp source. It was hidden in configure:
"--with-pic" option. I've enabled it and now both glibc and musl works
perfect. Created gentoo bug For everyone
who will read this thread - you need to enable "--with-pic" option for gmp.
You don't need to disable assembly completely.

So on this week I will try to create small user friendly patch for musl
about readonly relocations.
