Having had a look at glibc's implementation and its complexity ;-) that
might indeed be a reachable goal (assuming that no other surprises show

[Copyright header.]

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

extern char **__libc_argv attribute_hidden;

__attribute__ ((noreturn))
__stack_chk_fail (void)
  /* The loop is added only to keep gcc happy.  */
  while (1)
    __libc_message (1, "*** stack smashing detected ***: %s terminated\n",
                    __libc_argv[0] ?: "<unknown>");

I'll give it a try.
