    It's known for things like GNU lib-c, since you can just go and read the source directly.

    The standard itself makes no statement as to what algorithm qsort (or bsearch for that matter) should implement.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
