Re: [PATCH 02/12] Make __stack_chk_fail() not use other glibc facilities.

Magnus Granberg has now pointed me at a much more recent version of this
change, which replaces __chk_fail() to the same end and reimplement
__stack_chk_fail() in terms of it. I'll incorporate that in the next
version. (The only concern is that this has received changes from lots
of people. Maybe I'll have to reimplement it entirely to avoid
copyright-assignment concerns. What a drag...)
