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 ""

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

.size foo, .-foo
