* GCC stack protector support.
* Stack protector works by putting predefined pattern at the start of
* the stack frame and verifying that it hasn't been overwritten when
* returning from the function. The pattern is called stack canary
* and gcc expects it to be defined by a global variable called
* "__stack_chk_guard" on ARM. This unfortunately means that on SMP
* we cannot have a different canary value per task.
#include <linux/random.h>
#include <linux/version.h>
extern unsigned long __stack_chk_guard;
* Initialize the stackprotector canary value.
* NOTE: this must only be called from functions that never return,
* and it must always be inlined.
