Default Bug#509007: mkvmlinuz: force -fno-stack-protector

Package: mkvmlinuz
Version: 35
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch
User: ubuntu-devel@lists.ubuntu.com
Usertags: origin-ubuntu ubuntu-patch jaunty

Ubuntu uses -fstack-protector by default; this doesn't work for
standalone code like mkvmlinuz (https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/53460)
and so we need to explicitly compile with -fno-stack-protector. I know
this isn't an immediate problem for Debian, but would you consider
applying this patch anyway? It should be harmless.
