Yeah, that means every distro that supports XFS (i.e. pretty much
all of them including Fedora) will be forced disable 4k stacks on
x86. I'd be happy with this solution.

FWIW, this would make 4k stacks pretty much unused outside of custom
kernels. At which point I'd suggest a default of 4k is wrong....
Cheers,
