Hey All,

I'm interested in getting SafeStack working in FreeBSD base. Below is a
link to a simplistic (maybe too simplistic?) patch to enable SafeStack.
The patch applies against HardenedBSD's hardened/current/master branch.
Given how simple the patch is, it'd be extremely easy to port over to
FreeBSD (just line numbers would change).

I am running into a bit of a problem, though. When linking
lib/libcom_err, I get the following error:

com_err.So: In function `com_err':
/usr/src/lib/libcom_err/../../contrib/com_err/com_err.c:100: undefined 
reference to `__safestack_unsafe_stack_ptr'
cc: error: linker command failed with exit code 1 (use -v to see invocation)
*** [libcom_err.so.5.full] Error code 1

llvm's documentation says that SafeStack has been tested on FreeBSD.
When and how was it tested? Apparently someone has done some work to
enable it on FreeBSD, but I can't find any relevant FreeBSD-specific

If someone could point me in the right direction, I'd love to help get
SafeStack working (and commited?) in FreeBSD.
