That is completely out of the discussion here.

If you want to bump compiler requirements, you ask for that, with good reasons why, like which mitigation features you are talking about, and maybe people will agree with you. You cannot unilaterally bump the requirements, without discussion.

Knowing that SSP is available since at least clang 5, including the strong variant, for example.
