[Bug 1574982] Re: Cannot use CONFIG_CC_STACKPROTECTOR_STRONG: -fstack-protector-strong not supported by compiler

says its a kernel toolchain problem; so opening a 'linux' issue too.

  Installing the latest 4.4.0-22 kernel ends with that error logged into

  the latest error logged is:

  /var/lib/dkms/nvidia-361/361.42/build/nvidia/nv-frontend.c:1:0: error:
  code model kernel does not support PIC mode

  Looks like it is related to the latest changes updates: gcc-6/gcc-5 5.3.1-16ubuntu2 (some packages built with gcc-6; gcc-5 disabled for the packages built with gcc-6)
  Maybe some alternatives has not been updated to take care of these changes, as asked some time ago:
