Yes, and also in the case of a broken stack protector, because some
compilers enable stack protector by default, so if we've selected it
to be NONE or detected it as broken, we need to force it off in the
compiler.

FWIW, this is the part that I got stuck on.
gcc-$(SRCARCH)_$(BITS)-has-stack-protector.sh depends on the KBUILD
flags that got built up and detected up to this point in the Makefile,
so I couldn't find a way to run it out of Kconfig since it didn't know
what the KBUILD flags were yet.

I'm nervous we'll get tripped up here, since $CC may not include the
right $(KBUILD_CPPFLAGS) and $(CC_OPTION_CFLAGS) as in cc-option, both
of which are calculated during the Makefile run. But maybe it won't be
a problem in actual use.

I continue to love the idea, but we can't know a given ssp option is
_working_ until we run the test script, which may depend on compiler
flags. Regardless, I'll give this series a try and see if I can fix
anything I trip over. I've got a lot of notes on testing after getting
..._AUTO working. Whatever happens, I hugely prefer having the
automatic selection possible in the Kconfig! Thanks for working on
this! :)
