    Sure, here we go:

    kevin@alekhine:~$ echo "int foo(void) { char X[200]; return 3; }" | gcc -S -xc -c -O0 -mcmodel=kernel -fstack-protector - -o -
    .file ""
    .globl foo
    .type foo, @function
    pushq %rbp
    movq %rsp, %rbp
    subq $208, %rsp
    movq %gs:40, %rax
    movq %rax, -8(%rbp)
    xorl %eax, %eax
    movl $3, %eax
    movq -8(%rbp), %rdx
    xorq %gs:40, %rdx
    je .L3
    call __stack_chk_fail
    .size foo, .-foo

    .align 8
    .ident "GCC: (GNU) 4.2.3 (Ubuntu 4.2.3-2ubuntu7)"
    .section .note.GNU-stack,"",@progbits

    Does that help?
