I've managed to compile kernel 2.6.10 with -fstack-protector-all. As far as I 
know this is a first. Attached is the new patch. Anyone here have ssp 
installed and want to test overflow code in their kernel??? Do any of you 
have some code we can inject in a module that should cause a typical overflow 
to test this with?

I had to add -fno-stack-protector-all just for the gzip code (misc.c) because 
it doesn't use kernel library functions. Several other cleanups compared to 
the old patch too.

I want to backport this to kernel 2.4, but I want to be sure the 2.6 patch 
works first.
