stackprotector: turn not having the right gcc into a #warning
If the user selects the stack-protector config option, but does not have a gcc that has the right bits enabled (for example because it isn't build with a glibc that supports TLS, as is common for cross-compilers, but also because it may be too old), then the runtime test fails right now. This patch adds a warning message for this scenario. This warning accomplishes two goals 1) the user is informed that the security option he selective isn't available 2) the user is suggested to turn of the CONFIG option that won't work for him, and would make the runtime test fail anyway.
