[LinuxBIOS] Fwd: Possible stack protect solutions (RESEND)

This patch will enable setting distro variables such as
-fno_stack_protector as needed. It is a simple patch to  buildtarget
and can be extended for other uses.

If this patch is acceptable then we can fix the various makefiles to
include the variable.

The only remaining question is the name -- is CPU_OPT really appropriate?

Try this. This patch to buildtarget
1. sets up cpu opt for the no stack protector thing
2. sets up the makefiles for the target
3. the target builds
But it's not picking up CPU_OPT. So we MUST have the other patch that
ALWAYS includes CPU_OPT.

That said, I'd rather make the variable DISTRO_CC_OPT or some such.
