Hi Ian
 what we found now is, the Gentoo's hardened toolchain, turn CFLAGS
-fstack-check on by default, with this flag and compile gcc will
result xl segfault (actually with libgcc_s.so)
 we have a patch to force gcc build libgcc(only this part) code with
-fstack-check=no, make the segfault gone
 more info can be found at https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=528690
