[Xen-devel] [PATCH] xen: Disable stack protector for irq helper

The stack protector needs additional registers on x86_32, which are not
saved in calls to the small paravirt interrupt handlers. This leads to
early crashes as registers are overwritten and not saved by the caller
as instructed.

Mind your own business, Spock.  I'm sick of your halfbreed interference.
