    2.6 is a stable kernel series used in production environments.

    The correct solution is to fix XFS (and other problems with 4kb stacks
    if they occur), and my patch is only a short-term workaround.

    4KSTACKS=n is simply the better tested case, and 4KSTACKS=y uncovers
    some issues you might not want to see in production environments.
