Subject[patch 4/5] -fstack-protector feature: Add the __stack_chk_fail() function
From
Date
Subject: [patch 4/5] Add the __stack_chk_fail() function

GCC emits a call to a __stack_chk_fail() function when the stack canary is
not matching the expected value.

Since this is a bad security issue; lets panic the kernel rather than limping
along; the kernel really can't be trusted anymore when this happens.
