Subject[PATCH 4/5] arm64: ascii armor the arm64 boot init stack canary
Date
From: Rik van Riel <riel@redhat.com>

Use the ascii-armor canary to prevent unterminated C string overflows
from being able to successfully overwrite the canary, even if they
somehow obtain the canary value.

Inspired by execshield ascii-armor and PaX/grsecurity.
