SubjectRe: unistack: intel kernel stack hack against 2.1.22
If there's really only 900 bytes free on the stack then maybe 8K stacks
are really a good idea. That seems awfully close for comfort. On the
other hand maybe it's just time to go dig through the kernel and find the
culprits that are allocating too much on the stack.
