really have full stack protector support, while perhaps -fstack-protector
doesn't error out on armv7, it certainly isn't supported in glibc
(neither TLS stack guard, not TLS pointer guard), so I wouldn't talk about
arm having security standards high enough for being a primary architecture.
So what does the kernel level CC_STACKPROTECTOR config option bring to
this as it appears to be associated with the -fstack-protector option
as well (according to it's Kconfig description) but is only supported
on x86/arm from that list above (plus sh).
