I think the point that -Werror=alloca -Werror=vla would be desirable for
building glibc (if you don't have any variable-size stack allocations, you
don't need to worry about problems with unbounded stack allocations, which
are always bad, even given reliable stack checking, because of the
inability to report errors from them) is a good one about why to avoid
using the VLA approach.
