That could be easily fixed by executing the printk on the interrupt
stack on i386. Currently it is before the stack switch which is wrong
agreed. On x86-64 it should already execute on the interrupt stack. Or
perhaps it would be better to just move the stack switch on i386 into
entry.S too similar to 64bit.

That wouldn't help without interrupt stacks of course, but these
should be always on anyways even with 8k stacks.

Experimental patch appended to do this.

i386: Execute stack overflow warning on interrupt stack

Previously it would run on the process stack, which risks overflow
an already low stack. Instead execute it on the interrupt stack.

Based on an observation by Eric Sandeen.
