This is a good idea. However, I might suggest using gcc 4.0 (you'll
have to use a snapshot now, but the release should only be a few weeks
away). A patch went into gcc 4.0 that makes gcc more intelligent
about sharing stack for variables that cannot be alive at the same
time, and therefore it may be more feasible to make unit-at-a-time
work for the i386 kernels.
