07:31 pm - GCC 4.5 unmasking delay
As some have noticed, the weekend is over and we haven't unmasked GCC 4.5. Zorry alerted me to a bug that I forgot about (https://bugs.gentoo.org/341743) that breaks hardened bad and can be triggered in non-hardened with -fno-strict-overflow. A bug has been filed upstream.

Good that there is gentoo finding such bugs :)

But on another note: this bug really sounds very specific to hardened. So wouldn't it be best to unmask it globally, but keep the mask for hardened?

That would really largen the amount of people testing 4.5 which at this point I think would be every beneficial
