That's completely unrelated. It's the amount of stack used by taking an
interrupt, rounded up if need be. Look at the various architecture HALs

Minimum is meant to be the minimum stack size you can get away with to get
into a C call frame from a thread; with no stack variables defined.
Although HAL developers have (incorrectly) tended to make these values too
Typical is a suggested reasonable stack size for a smallish app. It has no
meaning beyond that, and is primarily only used by eCos tests for expediency.
