Odd, the current linux master tree builds just fine with CONFIG_FORTIFY_SOURCE=y.
There *is* a reference to fortify_panic in drivers/s390/char/sclp_early.o.
This object is included in the link for the compressed vmlinux, but the
function that contains the call to fortify_panic is not included in the
compressed image. I wonder what causes this difference in behavior.

The patch makes sense though and I will add it to the queue.
