Okay. I applied a modified form of your patch which puts common definitions
in config/StdGNU.mk.

I applied your second patch, but not the third (SSP/ProPolice) one as I
don't understand why it's needed. If there's some extra magic in OpenBSD's
gcc, I hope there is a flag we can specify to turn it off for the hypervisor
