Details

This bug is to cover to turning on the --enable-hardening flag introduced by bug 620058 on Mac builds. Turning this on is going to include the changes to set the flag and also performance testing to determine performance impacts.
Blocks: 1359928
Depends on: 620058
First look at performance difference seems ok: https://treeherder.mozilla.org/#/jobs?repo=try&revision=f921a8bf821c2b8c9b16636d7a5d11285c76059a

The current patch for Bug 1503589 will flip this for all "gcc and clang like" compilers. So if that lands, it will cover this as well.
I'm going to close this based on bug 1503589 and bug 1359905 landing (assuming the latter doesn't get backed out).
