2009-02-11stackprotector: fix multi-word cross-buildsIngo Molnar1-1/+1
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 Heo1-0/+8
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.
