Comment 3 Colin Walters 2020-03-03 15:44:15 UTC
Side note, builds are getting blocked in Errata Tool due to what looks like a potential rust-lang regression around -fPIC, see

I raised it with Josh Stone but I think short term we should just ask the security team to waive this; it's mostly impacting i686 which we don't even ship with OpenShift, *and* using a memory safe language without null pointers etc. is a much stronger security improvement than PIC code - doesn't hurt to have both but we shouldn't allow weaker mitigations to block stronger ones.
