[SeaBIOS] [PATCH v2] build: use -fcf-protection=none when available

Posted by Christian Ehrhardt 27 weeks ago
Some hardened gcc v9 compilers (such as the one in Ubuntu)
default this option which for seabios leads to emulation errors
when running in KVM (does not trigger in TCG) on older intel
chips of the Penryn generation (~2006-2008).

The symptom appears as endbr32/endbr64 interpretation failures
and in KVM it looks like:
  KVM internal error. Suberror: 1
  emulation failure

Hi,
other than the request to add "endbr32/endbr64 interpretation
failures" to the commit message there was no other feedback.
This was done in v2 and since then nothing happened, therefore I
wanted to ping if this can be accepted into master?
