A few people have been running with the GCC stack fence diff I came up
with, which puts a fence between each buffer (rather than the last one
as stack protector does).

Mplayer has been crashing since due to a buffer overrun in
mp_input_parse_config() which always does buffer[-1] = '\0' at the
very end.  The following fixes it and I think is what was intended.
