x86: implement x86_32 stack protector
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.
