[llvm-dev] CFI, Safe-Stack, and -fno-sanitize-trap

I am using clang++3.9 to build a simple program with both CFI and safe-stack. I am getting linker errors when combining -fsanitize=safe-stack, -fsanitize=cfi, and -fno-sanitize-trap=all. Combining safe-stack and CFI without -fno-sanitize-trap=all works as expected. 

It looks like clang is attempting to link in two compiler-rt libraries, one for ubsan and one for safestack, and this causes multiply defined symbols. 

Is this the expected behavior? Can only one sanitizer at a time have trapping disabled?

The command line to trigger is below.

$ clang++-3.9 -flto -fvisibility=default -fsanitize=safe-stack -fsanitize=cfi -fuse-ld=gold -fno-sanitize-trap=all hello.cpp
... lots of multiply defined symbol errors...
