no suprise here. As Ralf already noted cache barrier is a restricted

by the simple exploit. Flo built glibc 2.7 with LLSC war workaround
and this avoids triggering the hang.

Ah, didn't know the 'cache' instructions was kernel-mode only. Explains why it survived then :)

How does one enable the LLSC war workaround in glibc?
