It seems that linux-3.14.2-1 in the core repo is built with gcc (4.9.0) to be able to utilize the -fstack-protector-strong compiler flag. This of course causes problems for us who wish to compile our own modules against the kernel, since gcc from the core repo is still at version 4.8.2.

Additional info:
* core/linux-3.14.2-1
* core/gcc-4.8.2-8

Steps to reproduce:
1. Download the broadcom-wl tarball from
2. Extract, run makepkg
3. Output:
make: Entering directory '/usr/lib/modules/3.14.2-1-ARCH/build'
Makefile:615: Cannot use CONFIG_CC_STACKPROTECTOR_STRONG: -fstack-protector-strong not supported by compiler
This task depends upon
