TitleStack Scanner for Linux and FreeBSD is not shared.
Assigned userDavid Jones
DescriptionStack Scanner for Linux and FreeBSD is not shared.

ssfri3.c and sslii3.c are the Stack Scanner for FreeBSD and Linux (both
on Intel) respectively. The files are essentially identical and they
should be merged so we only use one file.
AnalysisObservation: The files depend more on the compiler toolchain than the
OS, they use GCC specific assembler syntax.

Choose name. Possibly reflecting the GCC dependency. ssi3gc.c
Merge files.
Fix makefiles.

Possibly such a stack scanner could be used on OS X Intel as well

2007-03-01 DRJ: Done. ssixi3.c. Untested on Linux.
