I can't really address the rest of what you brought up in your message
(about trap alignment) but the above issue is (for now) fixed by the
import of gcc 4.2.1 and follow-on change of to use -O2.
Experimenting a bit before I'd found sshd only seemed to mis-behave when
compiled with -O1 (-O and -O2 resulted in sshd's that were OK with
privilege separation turned on).  I haven't done the same experimenting
since the 4.2.1 import was done.
