Right. Sorry, I only tested (dosbox & svgalib) with stackprotector
enabled. This time I ensured it compiles and runs dosbox & mode3 (from
svgalib) both with and without stackprotector:

Subject: [PATCH] Fix non-lazy GS handling in sys_vm86()

This fixes a stack corruption panic or null dereference oops due to
a bad GS in resume_userspace() when returning from sys_vm86() and calling
lockdep_sys_exit().

Only a problem when CONFIG_LOCKDEP and CONFIG_CC_STACKPROTECTOR enabled.
