Subject: [PATCH 4.9 140/164] stackprotector: Increase the per-task stack canarys random range from 32 bits to 64 bits on 64-bit platforms

4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Daniel Micay <danielmicay@...il.com>

commit 5ea30e4e58040cfd6434c2f33dc3ea76e2c15b05 upstream.

The stack canary is an 'unsigned long' and should be fully initialized to
random data rather than only 32 bits of random data.
