That clears things up way better than the documentation I was able to
dig up. Thanks!

One quick question.

Following your guidelines above would pass those two compiler options
no matter what. Do you believe this to be the more prudent option
going forward? Considering stack protection has made it into mainline
GCC we may eventually see tests that require stack protection to be
enabled. Using a check to see if the flag is present before forcing
stack protection off would prevent any failures in that event.

I guess the question should be do you think we will ever see tests
that require stack protection?
