Commit 69d66beb by Elliott Hughes Committed by Wolfgang Wiedmeyer

Enable -fstack-protector-strong for arm.

This results in nearly all functions with the possibility of stack
corruption getting stack canaries, because it applies to any function
taking a reference to the frame or with a local array rather than just
the functions with arrays larger than 8 bytes. It was developed for use
in Chrome (and Chrome OS) and has also been adopted by various other
distributions (Arch, Fedora, Ubuntu, etc).

The code size increase ranges from ~1.5% to ~2.5%, compared to ~0.3% to
~0.7% with the more conservative switch. The increase in the performance
loss is usually minimal. The overall size increase once everything other
than C and C++ code is taken into account is minimal, and it greatly
improves the mitigation of stack buffer overflow vulnerabilities.
