Subject[RFC/PATCH 3/3] init: Move stack canary initialization after setup_arch
Date
Stack canary intialization involves getting a random number.
Getting this random number may involve accessing caches or other
architectural specific features which are not available until
after the architecture is setup. Move the stack canary initialization
later to accomodate this.
