 * GCC stack protector support.
 * (This is directly adopted from the ARM implementation)
 * 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 MIPS.  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.
static __always_inline void boot_init_stack_canary(void)

	/* Try to get a semi random initial value. */
