[PATCH] qemu: Bump git version and disable stack protection

Stack protection must be disabled (--disable-stack-protection) must
be disabled to avoid bugs in older toolsets. If this can be made
conditional somehow, it is supposed to be needed on CentOS 5 and 6.
There are at least two patches in Qemu Patchworks which are supposed
to fix this but they do not fix it.


The bump in the git version is an update to ensure all patches
that might be related to this issue which have been committed
were used. But apparently none were. The bump also avoids a period
where "make install" did not work on CentOS 7 due to a missing BIOS
file. This was likely a failure in all host environments.
