Adds the flag --enable-asan to configure
Run __lsan_do_leak_check before v8 teardown and add -DLEAK_SANITIZER for v8 to make it possible for lsan to scan v8 heap

CC=clang CXX=clang++ ./configure --enable-asan
LSAN_OPTIONS=suppressions=`pwd`/tools/lsan_blacklist.txt make check

Command above runs fine with #2359 and #2375 except for test/sequential/test-child-process-emfile.js because RLIMIT_NOFILE prevents lsan from running

Can you put it before --enable-static? I'd like to keep a semblance of alphabetical order.

Maybe you can stuff the file descriptors in an array and fs.closeSync() them on exit?

Just curious, what's the purpose of blacklisting strdup()? Apropos __res_vinit(), I've never seen that leak myself. Are you seeing that with a particular version of glibc?

Removed strdup and I see the __res_vinit leak with glibc 2.22-1. I added a simple opportunity to suppress all leaks from libc.so in lsan_suppressions.txt

The first commit's log line should be <= 50 characters and the convention is to use all lowercase (i.e. s/Add/add/). Left some comments but basically LGTM.

Can't you do this unconditionally at the end of the test? There's less failure mode if the LSAN_OPTIONS sniffing can be removed.

I think it's failing because the compiler isn't happy with the options, so the jenkins is actually doing its job, run a node-test-pull-request and it'll probably bork in the same way

CI run failed because I thought false and 0 was interchangeable with gyp that resulted in a build with sanitizer enabled but the CI doesn't support that in the moment apparently. Fixed by comparing with "true".

You should keep this an int because that's what V8 expects (it inherits it.)

You can assign it in configure with o['variables']['asan'] = int(options.enable_asan).

I can't test on OS X but from some searches only the xcode 7 beta supports the sanitizer out of the box.
For example v8 supplies a custom asan dynamic runtime for mac.

@skomski this is for our use, right? I have custom clang build that has support for asan. Being able to build node with asan support using just configure would be very helpful for me (maybe some other people too).

Update to 4.0.0
* OpenSSL 1.0.2 or later is required.

Changelog:
## 2015-09-08, Version 4.0.0 (Stable), @rvagg

### Notable changes

This list of changes is relative to the last io.js v3.x branch release, v3.3.0. Please see the list of notable changes in the v3.x, v2.x and v1.x releases for a more complete list of changes from 0.12.x. Note, that some changes in the v3.x series as well as major breaking changes in this release constitute changes required for full convergence of the Node.js and io.js projects.

* **child_process**: `ChildProcess.prototype.send()` and `process.send()` operate asynchronously across all platforms so an optional callback parameter has been introduced that will be invoked once the message has been sent, i.e. `.send(message[, sendHandle][, callback])` (Ben Noordhuis) [#2620](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2620).
* **node**: Rename "io.js" code to "Node.js" (cjihrig) [#2367](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2367).
* **node-gyp**: This release bundles an updated version of node-gyp that works with all versions of Node.js and io.js including nightly and release candidate builds. From io.js v3 and Node.js v4 onward, it will only download a headers tarball when building addons rather than the entire source. (Rod Vagg) [#2700](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2700)
* **npm**: Upgrade to version 2.14.2 from 2.13.3, includes a security update, see https://github.com/npm/npm/releases/tag/v2.14.2 for more details, (Kat Marchán) [#2696](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2696).
* **timers**: Improved timer performance from porting the 0.12 implementation, plus minor fixes (Jeremiah Senkpiel) [#2540](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2540), (Julien Gilli) [nodejs/node-v0.x-archive#8751](https://github.com/nodejs/node-v0.x-archive/pull/8751) [nodejs/node-v0.x-archive#8905](https://github.com/nodejs/node-v0.x-archive/pull/8905)
* **util**: The `util.is*()` functions have been deprecated, beginning with deprecation warnings in the documentation for this release, users are encouraged to seek more robust alternatives in the npm registry, (Sakthipriyan Vairamani) [#2447](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2447).
* **v8**: Upgrade to version 4.5.103.30 from 4.4.63.30 (Ali Ijaz Sheikh) [#2632](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2632).
 - Implement new `TypedArray` prototype methods: `copyWithin()`, `every()`, `fill()`, `filter()`, `find()`, `findIndex()`, `forEach()`, `indexOf()`, `join()`, `lastIndexOf()`, `map()`, `reduce()`, `reduceRight()`, `reverse()`, `slice()`, `some()`, `sort()`. See https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Global_Objects/TypedArray for further information.
 - Implement new `TypedArray.from()` and `TypedArray.of()` functions. See https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Global_Objects/TypedArray for further information.
 - Implement arrow functions, see https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Functions/Arrow_functions for further information.
 - Full ChangeLog available at https://github.com/v8/v8-git-mirror/blob/4.5.103/ChangeLog

### Known issues

See https://github.com/nodejs/node/labels/confirmed-bug for complete and current list of known issues.

* Some uses of computed object shorthand properties are not handled correctly by the current version of V8. e.g. `[{ [prop]: val }]` evaluates to `[{}]`. [#2507](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/2507)
* Some problems with unreferenced timers running during `beforeExit` are still to be resolved. See [#1264](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/1264).
* Surrogate pair in REPL can freeze terminal. [#690](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/690)
* Calling `dns.setServers()` while a DNS query is in progress can cause the process to crash on a failed assertion. [#894](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/894)
* `url.resolve` may transfer the auth portion of the url when resolving between two full hosts, see [#1435](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/1435).

## 2015-09-02, Version 3.3.0, @rvagg

### Notable changes

* **build**: Add a `--link-module` option to `configure` that can be used to bundle additional JavaScript modules into a built binary (Bradley Meck) [#2497](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2497)
* **docs**: Merge outstanding doc updates from joyent/node (James M Snell) [#2378](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2378)
* **http_parser**: Significant performance improvement by having `http.Server` consume all initial data from its `net.Socket` and parsing directly without having to enter JavaScript. Any `'data'` listeners on the `net.Socket` will result in the data being "unconsumed" into JavaScript, thereby undoing any performance gains. (Fedor Indutny) [#2355](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2355)
* **libuv**: Upgrade to 1.7.3 (from 1.6.1), see [ChangeLog](https://github.com/libuv/libuv/blob/v1.x/ChangeLog) for details (Saúl Ibarra Corretgé) [#2310](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2310)
* **V8**: Upgrade to 4.4.63.30 (from 4.4.63.26) (Michaël Zasso) [#2482](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2482)

### Known issues

See https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/labels/confirmed-bug for complete and current list of known issues.

* Some uses of computed object shorthand properties are not handled correctly by the current version of V8. e.g. `[{ [prop]: val }]` evaluates to `[{}]`. [#2507](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/2507)
* Some problems with unreferenced timers running during `beforeExit` are still to be resolved. See [#1264](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/1264).
* Surrogate pair in REPL can freeze terminal. [#690](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/690)
* `process.send()` is not synchronous as the docs suggest, a regression introduced in 1.0.2, see [#760](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/760).
* Calling `dns.setServers()` while a DNS query is in progress can cause the process to crash on a failed assertion. [#894](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/894)
* `url.resolve` may transfer the auth portion of the url when resolving between two full hosts, see [#1435](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/1435).

## 2015-08-25, Version 3.2.0, @rvagg

### Notable changes

* **events**: Added `EventEmitter#listenerCount(event)` as a replacement for `EventEmitter.listenerCount(emitter, event)`, which has now been marked as deprecated in the docs. (Sakthipriyan Vairamani) [#2349](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2349)
* **module**: Fixed an error with preloaded modules when the current working directory doesn't exist. (Bradley Meck) [#2353](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2353)
* **node**: Startup time is now about 5% faster when not passing V8 flags. (Evan Lucas) [#2483](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2483)
* **repl**: Tab-completion now works better with arrays. (James M Snell) [#2409](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2409)
* **string_bytes**: Fixed an unaligned write in the handling of UCS2 encoding. (Fedor Indutny) [#2480](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2480)
* **tls**: Added a new `--tls-cipher-list` flag that can be used to override the built-in default cipher list. (James M Snell) [#2412](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2412) _Note: it is suggested you use the built-in cipher list as it has been carefully selected to reflect current security best practices and risk mitigation._

### Known issues

See https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/labels/confirmed-bug for complete and current list of known issues.

* Some uses of computed object shorthand properties are not handled correctly by the current version of V8. e.g. `[{ [prop]: val }]` evaluates to `[{}]`. [#2507](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/2507)
* Some problems with unreferenced timers running during `beforeExit` are still to be resolved. See [#1264](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/1264).
* Surrogate pair in REPL can freeze terminal. [#690](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/690)
* `process.send()` is not synchronous as the docs suggest, a regression introduced in 1.0.2, see [#760](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/760).
* Calling `dns.setServers()` while a DNS query is in progress can cause the process to crash on a failed assertion. [#894](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/894)
* `url.resolve` may transfer the auth portion of the url when resolving between two full hosts, see [#1435](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/1435).

## 2015-08-18, Version 3.1.0, @Fishrock123

### Notable changes

* **buffer**: Fixed a couple large memory leaks (Ben Noordhuis) [#2352](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2352).
* **crypto**:
  - Fixed a couple of minor memory leaks (Karl Skomski) [#2375](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2375).
  - Signing now checks for OpenSSL errors (P.S.V.R) [#2342](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2342). **Note that this may expose previously hidden errors in user code.**
* **intl**: Intl support using small-icu is now enabled by default in builds (Steven R. Loomis) [#2264](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2264).
  - [`String#normalize()`](https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Global_Objects/String/normalize) can now be used for unicode normalization.
  - The [`Intl`](https://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Global_Objects/Intl) object and various `String` and `Number` methods are present, but only support the English locale.
  - For support of all locales, node must be built with [full-icu](https://github.com/nodejs/node#build-with-full-icu-support-all-locales-supported-by-icu).
* **tls**: Fixed tls throughput being much lower after an incorrect merge (Fedor Indutny) [#2381](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2381).
* **tools**: The v8 tick processor now comes bundled with node (Matt Loring) [#2090](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2090).
  - This can be used by producing performance profiling output by running node with `--perf`, then running your appropriate platform's script on the output as found in [tools/v8-prof](https://github.com/nodejs/node/tree/master/tools/v8-prof).
* **util**: `util.inspect(obj)` now prints the constructor name of the object if there is one (Christopher Monsanto) [#1935](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/pull/1935).

### Known issues

See https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/labels/confirmed-bug for complete and current list of known issues.

* Some problems with unreferenced timers running during `beforeExit` are still to be resolved. See [#1264](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/1264).
* Surrogate pair in REPL can freeze terminal. [#690](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/690)
* `process.send()` is not synchronous as the docs suggest, a regression introduced in 1.0.2, see [#760](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/760).
* Calling `dns.setServers()` while a DNS query is in progress can cause the process to crash on a failed assertion. [#894](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/894)
* `url.resolve` may transfer the auth portion of the url when resolving between two full hosts, see [#1435](https://github.com/nodejs/io.js/issues/1435).

## 2015-08-04, Version 3.0.0, @rvagg

### Notable changes

* **buffer**:
  - Due to changes in V8, it has been necessary to reimplement `Buffer` on top of V8's `Uint8Array`. Every effort has been made to minimize the performance impact, however `Buffer` instantiation is measurably slower. Access operations may be faster in some circumstances but the exact performance profile and difference over previous versions will depend on how `Buffer` is used within applications. (Trevor Norris) [#1825](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/1825).
  - `Buffer` can now take `ArrayBuffer`s as a constructor argument (Trevor Norris) [#2002](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2002).
  - When a single buffer is passed to `Buffer.concat()`, a new, copied `Buffer` object will be returned; previous behavior was to return the original `Buffer` object (Sakthipriyan Vairamani) [#1937](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/1937).
* **build**: PPC support has been added to core to allow compiling on pLinux BE and LE (AIX support coming soon) (Michael Dawson) [#2124](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2124).
* **dgram**: If an error occurs within `socket.send()` and a callback has been provided, the error is only passed as the first argument to the callback and not emitted on the `socket` object; previous behavior was to do both (Matteo Collina & Chris Dickinson) [#1796](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/1796)
* **freelist**: Deprecate the undocumented `freelist` core module (Sakthipriyan Vairamani) [#2176](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2176).
* **http**:
  - Status codes now all use the official [IANA names](http://www.iana.org/assignments/http-status-codes) as per [RFC7231](https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7231), e.g. `http.STATUS_CODES[414]` now returns `'URI Too Long'` rather than `'Request-URI Too Large'` (jomo) [#1470](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/1470).
  - Calling .getName() on an HTTP agent no longer returns a trailing colon, HTTPS agents will no longer return an extra colon near the middle of the string (Brendan Ashworth) [#1617](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/1617).
* **node**:
  - `NODE_MODULE_VERSION` has been bumped to `45` to reflect the break in ABI (Rod Vagg) [#2096](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2096).
  - Introduce a new `process.release` object that contains a `name` property set to `'io.js'` and `sourceUrl`, `headersUrl` and `libUrl` (Windows only) properties containing URLs for the relevant resources; this is intended to be used by node-gyp (Rod Vagg) [#2154](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2154).
  - The version of node-gyp bundled with io.js now downloads and uses a tarball of header files from iojs.org rather than the full source for compiling native add-ons; it is hoped this is a temporary floating patch and the change will be upstreamed to node-gyp soon (Rod Vagg) [#2066](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2066).
* **repl**: Persistent history is now enabled by default. The history file is located at ~/.node_repl_history, which can be overridden by the new environment variable `NODE_REPL_HISTORY`. This deprecates the previous `NODE_REPL_HISTORY_FILE` variable. Additionally, the format of the file has been changed to plain text to better handle file corruption. (Jeremiah Senkpiel) [#2224](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2224).
* **smalloc**: The `smalloc` module has been removed as it is no longer possible to provide the API due to changes in V8 (Ben Noordhuis) [#2022](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2022).
* **tls**: Add `server.getTicketKeys()` and `server.setTicketKeys()` methods for [TLS session key](https://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc5077.txt) rotation (Fedor Indutny) [#2227](https://github.com/nodejs/node/pull/2227).
* **v8**: Upgraded to 4.4.63.26
  - ES6: Enabled [computed property names](https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Operators/Object_initializer#Computed_property_names)
  - ES6: `Array` can now be subclassed in strict mode
  - ES6: Implement [rest parameters](https://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Functions/rest_parameters) in staging, use the `--harmony-rest-parameters` command line flag
  - ES6: Implement the [spread operator](https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Operators/Spread_operator) in staging, use the `--harmony-spreadcalls` command line flag
  - Removed `SetIndexedPropertiesToExternalArrayData` and related APIs, forcing a shift to `Buffer` to be reimplemented based on `Uint8Array`
  - Introduction of `Maybe` and `MaybeLocal` C++ API for objects which _may_ or _may not_ have a value.
  - Added support for PPC

### Known issues

See https://github.com/nodejs/node/labels/confirmed-bug for complete and current list of known issues.

* Some problems with unreferenced timers running during `beforeExit` are still to be resolved. See [#1264](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/1264).
* Surrogate pair in REPL can freeze terminal. [#690](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/690)
* `process.send()` is not synchronous as the docs suggest, a regression introduced in 1.0.2, see [#760](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/760).
* Calling `dns.setServers()` while a DNS query is in progress can cause the process to crash on a failed assertion. [#894](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/894)
* `url.resolve` may transfer the auth portion of the url when resolving between two full hosts, see [#1435](https://github.com/nodejs/node/issues/1435).
