hm, actually - the stackprotector impact is getting quite nasty. So i
think we are better off by merging the stackprotector fixes into
core/percpu, and then rebasing these commits on top of that. I pushed out
a new core/percpu branch with that done - and stackprotector works in that

Would you mind to redo these commits on top of that? I tried the conflict
resolution but it looks quite complex and non-obvious - it would be
cleaner to have it this way.
