This patch series adds support for the gcc 4.1 -fstack-protector feature to

this point these patches are just for comment, not for merging.

It's x86_64 specific?

for now it is yes; x86-64 is the "easiest" one because there already is a
per-processor datastructure in line with what gcc expect (eg similar to the
userland per thread structure). For x86... that's not there in the kernel.
