SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/3] Makefile: Move stackprotector availability out of Kconfig
Hi Kees,


2017-10-03 4:20 GMT+09:00 Kees Cook <keescook@chromium.org>:
> Various portions of the kernel, especially per-architecture pieces,

I have not tested this series,
but I think this commit is bad (with the follow-up patch applied).


I thought of this scenario:

[1] Kernel is configured with CONFIG_CC_STACKPROTECTOR_AUTO

[2] Kernel is built with a compiler without stack protector support.

[3] CONFIG_CC_STACKPROTECTOR is not defined,
so __stack_chk_fail() is not compiled.

[4] Out-of-tree modules are compiled with a compiler with
stack protector support.
__stack_chk_fail() is inserted to functions of the modules.

[5] insmod fails because reference to __stack_chk_fail()
can not be resolved.




I think "select CC_STACKPROTECTOR" should be kept in Kconfig.
