The issue is that compiling with -fstack-protector-all -Wstack-protector
causes a warning for functions that use variable sized arrays on
the stack or use alloca. Since we compile with -Werror, these
warnings are fatal. By compiling these source files with
-Wno-stack-protector, the warning goes away and those functions
are compiling with no stack protection.
