An interesting question is why most of our architectures for embedded
devices only offer bigger stacks:
The only architectures offering a 4kB stacks option are:
- 32bit x86
The following architectures that are used in embedded devices
always use 8kB stacks (or bigger) in your tree:
- mn10300 (has an #ifdef CONFIG_4KSTACKS but no kconfig option)
When did we get callpaths like like nfs+xfs+md+scsi reliably
working with 4kB stacks on x86-32?
