Bug Description

Hi

eglibc should have getcontext() on ARM as it does on x86.

The lack of getcontext() caused pth to switch back to a setjmp() based implementation on ARM, which is broken on all architectures; see bug #599862.

Cheers,

Adding a pth task to remember to revert the changes from bug #599862 to disable FORTIFY_SOURCE on armel as a workaround for this bug.

I'm trying my hand at a merge request into the Precise 2.15. The pth test suite now passes with it.
