      Description

      From the redhat recommended GCC compiler and linker flags article linked above, it is recommended to build C code with this flag to ensure that code using pthread_cleanup_push doesn't leave unprotected function pointers on the stack. I don't think we currently make use of pthread_cleanup_push, but it is possible we could start to do so in the future.
