AFL Merged into OCaml Trunk

AFL has been merged into OCaml trunk! Take care of all of your fuzzing needs and improve the functional coverage of your code by using ocaml-afl-persistent.

The OCaml AFL project started back at the first MirageOS hackathon in Marrakech earlier this year by Mindy Preston, and the patch provided by Stephen Dolan adds support to ocamlopt for generating afl compatible instrumentation and minimal runtime support to communicate with the fuzzer.

We need more people to fuzz OCaml programs and highlight/fix the subsequent bugs. It’s a great project to get started with, and Mindy Preston explains how to fuzz a program here
