Eek, no, this is breaking my build badly:

*** WARNING *** there are active plugins, do not report this as a bug
unless you can reproduce it without enabling any plugins.
Event | Plugins
PLUGIN_START_UNIT | stackleak_plugin
kernel/exit.c: In function ‘release_task’:
kernel/exit.c:228:1: internal compiler error: Segmentation fault
}

Failing with:

gcc (Ubuntu 7.3.0-16ubuntu3) 7.3.0
