My bet is different inlining decisions.
If somebody hands me over the preprocessed source + gcc command line, I can
have a look in detail (which exact change and why).

There is no such attribute, only __attribute__((stack_protect)) which is
meant mainly for -fstack-protector-explicit and does the opposite, or
__attribute__((optimize ("no-stack-protector"))) (which will work only
in GCC7+, since https://gcc.gnu.org/PR71585 changes).
Or of course you could add noinline attribute to whatever got inlined
and contains some array or addressable variable that whatever
-fstack-protector* mode kernel uses triggers it. With -fstack-protector-all
it would never work even in the past I believe.
