Comment (by yawning):

 > since asan is at odds with some of the address randomization stuff that
 we would want in a true hardened build.

 Is this "it doesn't run on grsec kernels because of PaX", or is there more
 that you're referring to here.

 (Since we're talking about the parts that are hardened, release/alpha do
 not build tor with seccomp support.  This would be good to have in alpha,
 though it will introduce a library dependency.)
