Makefile: introduce CONFIG_CC_STACKPROTECTOR_AUTO

Nearly all modern compilers support a stack-protector option, and nearly
all modern distributions enable the kernel stack-protector, so enabling
this by default in kernel builds would make sense.  However, Kconfig does
not have knowledge of available compiler features, so it isn't safe to
force on, as this would unconditionally break builds for the compilers or
architectures that don't have support.  Instead, this introduces a new
option, CONFIG_CC_STACKPROTECTOR_AUTO, which attempts to discover the best
possible stack-protector available, and will allow builds to proceed even
if the compiler doesn't support any stack-protector.

This option is made the default so that kernels built with modern
compilers will be protected-by-default against stack buffer overflows,
avoiding things like the recent BlueBorne attack.  Selection of a specific
stack-protector option remains available, including disabling it.

Additionally, tiny.config is adjusted to use CC_STACKPROTECTOR_NONE, since
that's the option with the least code size (and it used to be the default,
so we have to explicitly choose it there now).
