Re: [PATCH 02/12] Make __stack_chk_fail() not use other glibc facilities.

Well, when I had to do this last (years ago), there was an employer's
disclaimer of rights and there were assignment-and-grantback papers for
the individual to sign for the project in question. I still have the
latter to do for glibc.

Yeah, but the question is just why that incremental link is trying to
pull the stuff in twice rather than depending on the canonical copy in
libc -- presumably because everything is still statically linked at that
point. If that gets solved, the only reason for this patch being in this
series goes away.

True enough. I'll give it a try, and thanks for the help!
