Description Martin Milata 2014-01-13 18:56:58 UTC
The function fingerprinting only works on i686/x86_64, however it is not disabled on other arches. Normally it silently fails, however a segfault has been observed on ppc64.

We should consider disabling this feature altogether, I don't think it's actually used and if there was a way to pass it user-supplied binary it might even pose a security risk.

Note: the function fingerprinting was disabled for all architectures (including x86_64).
