Catalin,  We need to lift raise the values of MINSIGSTKSZ and
SIGSTCKSZ the former is currently smaller than a signal frame which
makes it  unusable.  These are defined in both glibc and in the kernel
but should be kept in sync.  The proposal in glibc is to lift these to
 8192 and 18384 respectively.  Thoughts?
