Comment (by eschnett):

 This would be straightforward to implement in PUGH and Carpet. In Carpet,
 the canaries would be initialized when the memory is allocated, and would
 be checked regularly (e.g. during poison checking), not just before

 I doubt that OpenMP provides its own malloc function. I expect all memory
 allocation (including operator new from C++) to go through libc's malloc.
