[GIT PULL] gcc-plugin stackleak for v4.20-rc1

Hi Linus,

Please pull this new GCC plugin, stackleak, for v4.20-rc1. This plugin
was ported from grsecurity by Alexander Popov. It provides efficient
stack content poisoning at syscall exit. This creates a defense against
at least two classes of flaws:

- Uninitialized stack usage. (We continue to work on improving the
compiler to do this in other ways: e.g. unconditional zero init was
proposed to GCC and Clang, and more plugin work has started too).

- Stack content exposure. By greatly reducing the lifetime of valid stack
contents, exposures via either direct read bugs or unknown cache
side-channels become much more difficult to exploit. This complements
the existing buddy and heap poisoning options, but provides the coverage
for stacks.

The x86 hooks are included in this series (which have been reviewed by
Ingo, Dave Hansen, and Thomas Gleixner). The arm64 hooks have already
been merged through the arm64 tree (written by Laura Abbott and reviewed
by Mark Rutland and Will Deacon).

With VLAs being removed this release (the final "-Wvla" patch is waiting
for the crypto, powerpc, and block trees to land in the merge window),
there is no need for alloca() protection, so it has been removed from
the plugin.

There is no use of BUG() or panic() (in fact, since the alloca()
protection has been removed, the arm64 hook using them is removed
as well).

There are two merge conflicts:

drivers/misc/lkdtm/core.c: Trivial addition of a new test.

Documentation/x86/x86_64/mm.txt: Looks nasty, but is actually trivial.
The memory layout tables were rewritten, so the two additions of
"STACKLEAK_POISON value in this last hole: ffffffffffff4111" just
belong at the end of the newly reformatted tables.
