Comment (by idl0r):

 It seems to be more a regression. Varnish 3.x did the gcc exec as root (or
 the user that executes varnishd) and the setuid() is done afterwards. In
 4.x it does the setuid() first and then the gcc exec.

 The way Varnish 4.x does it is much better though it needs the proposed
 fix to make it "perfect".
