Thanks for the fix! In general, for -Wstack-frame-larger-than=
warnings, is it possible that these sets of stack frames are already
too large if entered? Sure, inlining was a little aggressive, causing
more stack space use than maybe otherwise necessary at runtime, but
isn't it also possible that "no inlining" a stack frame can still be a
problem should the stack frame be entered? Doesn't the kernel have a
way of estimating the stack depth for any given frame? I guess I was
always curious if the best fix for these kind of warnings was to
non-stack allocate (kmalloc) certain locally allocated structs, or
no-inline the function. Surely there's cases where no-inlining is
safe, but I was curious if it's still maybe dangerous to enter the
problematic child most stack frame?
