2012-10-03kbuild: Fix gcc -x syntaxJean Delvare
The correct syntax for gcc -x is "gcc -x assembler", not "gcc -xassembler". Even though the latter happens to work, the former is what is documented in the manual page and thus what gcc wrappers such as icecream do expect. This isn't a cosmetic change. The missing space prevents icecream from recognizing compilation tasks it can't handle, leading to silent kernel miscompilations. Besides me, credits go to Michael Matz and Dirk Mueller for investigating the miscompilation issue and tracking it down to this incorrect -x parameter syntax.

2009-02-11stackprotector: fix multi-word cross-buildsIngo Molnar
Stackprotector builds were failing if CROSS_COMPILER was more than a single world (such as when distcc was used) - because the check scripts used $1 instead of $*. Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
2009-02-10x86: implement x86_32 stack protectorTejun Heo
Impact: stack protector for x86_32 Implement stack protector for x86_32. GDT entry 28 is used for it. It's set to point to stack_canary-20 and have the length of 24 bytes. CONFIG_CC_STACKPROTECTOR turns off CONFIG_X86_32_LAZY_GS and sets %gs to the stack canary segment on entry. As %gs is otherwise unused by the kernel, the canary can be anywhere. It's defined as a percpu variable. x86_32 exception handlers take register frame on stack directly as struct pt_regs. With -fstack-protector turned on, gcc copies the whole structure after the stack canary and (of course) doesn't copy back on return thus losing all changed. For now, -fno-stack-protector is added to all files which contain those functions. We definitely need something better.
