Review request for mesos, James Peach, Michael Park, and Neil Conway.


Only use `-fstack-protector-strong` if it's available to us. Remove `-Werror` and tackle this
in another discussion/JIRA.

Bugs: MESOS-6229

Repository: mesos


Use a default set of flags to provide additional security and hardening to libprocess. Additionally,
check and catch more warnings/errors.

Diffs (updated)

Compared the benchmarks with and without the flags being used. Also did a comparsion with
the flags being used with and without optimizations and without the flags being used with
and without optimizations. Overall the performance hit was very small with a 3-8% overhead
(optimizations brings this down slightly). Most benchmarks were about 5% (or less) slower.
