Add '-fwrapv' to gcc CFLAGS

This makes sure that gcc doesn't try to optimize away wrapping
arithmetic, which the kernel occasionally uses for overflow testing, ie
things like

	if (ptr + offset < ptr)

which technically is undefined for non-unsigned types. See

	http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12597

for details.

Not all versions of gcc support it, so we need to make it conditional
(it looks like it was introduced in gcc-3.4).
