Re: binary incompatibility among mipsel buildds
Greetings! This is still an issue on phrixos alone, it appears. As a
reminder, this buildd alone disables sbrk address unrandomization at the
user level (using the personality syscall). Could you please change the
setting (kernel.randomize_va_space I think) responsible for this?
