ASLR is not enabled on OpenWrt (as I said in a mail a few seconds ago) 
so any vulnerability in ASLR is irrelevant.

In my other message I pointed to the source of the build system with the 
default options for various stuff.

The same hardening options are used for both release and snapshot 
releases afaik.

They differ only in default package selection (and on source version 
used of course)
