Subject[PATCH] Stack protector Makefile breakage on x86_64
If you are using a 64-bit kernel with 32-bit userland, then
scripts/ invokes -32-bit gcc
with -mcmodel=kernel, which produces:

<stdin>:1:0: error: code model 'kernel' not supported in the 32 bit mode

and trips the "broken compiler" test at arch/x86/Makefile:118.

There are several places a fix is possible, but the following seems
cleanest. (But it's minimal; it would also be possible to factor
out a bunch of stuff from the two btanches of the if.)
