I think it works fine with "shadowstack", which is the default on OS/X and
Windows but not on Linux.  Maybe you can try with a version of pypy translated
with "--gcrootfinder=shadowstack".

The medium-term goal is to use only "shadowstack" on all platforms.  There is
still a small performance gain for using "asmgcc" right now, but it's buggy
enough that it doesn't really fully support the kind of gcc distributed with
OS/X nor Windows' MSVC.  If we reach the goal of making the performance gain
negligible, then this bug report will just fall into the not-relevant-any-more
