Ah, ok! So if you are not planning to enable the push mode then the
features are pretty well aligned, except:
 - On x86 it is possible to switch stacks without leaving a token 
 - The GCSPOPM/INCSSP looping may require longer loops on ARM 
   because it only pops one at at time.

If you are not going to use GCSPUSHM by default, then I think we
*should* be able to have some unified set of rules for developers for
glibc behaviors at least.
