I have Raspbian Jessie installed on my Raspberry PI, and I have a virtual box with a fresh install of Debian Jessie for amd64 with the armhf architecture enabled, and with the ARM cross toolchain from Emdebian installed. This is gcc 4.9 on both systems, and libc6 2.19-17 on both systems.
However, when I cross-compile a simple hello world on amd64:
root@vbox:~/# arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc-4.9 -g hello.c -o "hello.arm"
and try to run it on the ARM device, I get a segfault:

Any thoughts as to what's wrong here?
