So, technically, this works just fine. I wonder if it has an overly
confusing result, in that the compiler under normal situations will
see:

gcc ... -fno-stack-protector -fstack-protector -fstack-protector-strong ...

How about something like this instead:

ifdef CONFIG_CC_STACKPROTECTOR_STRONG
KBUILD_CFLAGS += -fstack-protector-strong
else
ifdef CONFIG_CC_STACKPROTECTOR
KBUILD_CFLAGS += -fstack-protector
else
KBUILD_CFLAGS += -fno-stack-protector
endif
endif
