[PATCH v2 0/2] Enable Data Execution Protection and Address Space Layout Randomization on Windows

These two techniques make it harder to come up with exploits, by reducing
what is commonly called the "attack surface" in security circles: by making
the addresses less predictable, and by making it harder to inject data that
is then (mis-)interpreted as code, this hardens Git's executables on

These patches have been carried in Git for Windows for over 3 years, and
should therefore be considered battle-tested.

Changes since v1:

 * When determining whether we build with optimization, -O0 and -Og are
   explicitly ignored.
