Applied, thanks.

Ah, just too late :-) Although this isn't hardening-related.

I'd like to also add the ‘--enable-openbsd-malloc’ configure flag to our Tor <>.

Since adding it, I've been able to serve more traffic more reliably on a memory-constrained relay — without any noticable increase in load. This might be different on a SoC, although I'd suspect RAM would be the limiting factor there too.

To anyone willing to give it a try & give their opinion on the matter: I'd be very grateful.

Kind regards,
