Subject[PATCH 33/70] x86/head/64: Build k/head64.c with -fno-stack-protector
From: Joerg Roedel <>

The code inserted by the stack protector does not work in the early
boot environment because it uses the GS segment, at least with memory
encryption enabled. Make sure the early code is compiled without this
feature enabled.
