I think we'll need to merge this in the meantime, but if gcc is able to
detect too large frame sizes, I think it should have the ability to take
a frame size limit into account when optimizing. I haven't checked if
this is already possible and just not honoured here (possibly due to a
bug) or if the feature is entirely missing. In any case we'll likely
have to live with this compiler issue for quite some time.
