One comment nit below, but other than that:

How about s/linear/physical? "linear" is confusing for us Intel wonks
(or maybe just me) because in Intel's parlance it means virtual addresses
for all intents and purposes. And an apostrophe to show possession would
help readability, e.g.:

/* The exception stacks' physical storage. No guard pages required */
