Sorry, for some reason that didn't make my inbox.  I'm taking it instead (with
Anup's review and the stable stuff).  It's on fixes.

Christoph: Some sort of CONFIG_IRQSTACKS seems reasonable, as I'm assuming that
very small systems may want to try and save memory.  That seems like too
invasive of a change for rc6, and given this fixes some concrete issues I think
it's better to just take it for now and do the better version later.

I'll add it to my TODO list, though that's pretty long so if someone else wants
to take a look they're more than welcome to.
