What's the worst-case additional stack usage due to this change?
The current architectural maximum vector size is 256 bytes,
so 2176 bytes total.
that limit can increase in the future and saving 8 z regs is not enough,
you need to save all 32 if the resolver code may touch the 32 fp regs.
(so with 256byte regs it's 8k + 128bytes for 4 pregs)
AArch64 has PTHREAD_MIN_STACK of 128KiB so this should be more than enough
to save and restore SVE registers for some simple function calling.
On the other hand, there is also this:
/* Minimum stack size for a signal handler. */
#define MINSIGSTKSZ 5120
/* System default stack size. */
#define SIGSTKSZ 16384
Since the kernel will also push >8KiB on the signal handler stack,
SIGSTKSZ is no longer sufficient.
