Re: malloc changes
:OpenBSD has alot of useful changes to its malloc.c so I decided to
:pull over a bunch of that.
:guard pages and chunk randomization
:free page protection
:no longer uses brk/sbrk
:updated man page
:affects the following files:
:in err.c i had to weak symbol warn. if you dont do that after you
:compile and install the patched libc it will fail make buildworld in
That's a pretty significant patch, how long did it take you to
integrate the work?
The patch looks ok to my quick perusal. I would like to get some
testing by other users, in particular with GUI programs like mozilla.
If that works out ok we can commit it.
