Hi Rob,

see http://lwn.net/Articles/39283/ for detailed information about the  
4G/4G patch.

As far as I know, it is not yet in the stock kernel.org kernels, but  
included in some fedora kernels.

Turning off CONFIG_4KSTACKS will give you 8k stacks. To get 16k stacks,  
you need to apply our linux-2.6.7-16kstacks.patch (or the equivalent,  
adapted to your kernel source tree), which is included in the  
kernel-2.6.6-1.435.2.3.stk16.src.rpm (presently available from  
i686.php) and enable the CONFIG_16KSTACKS option.

Note that I am trying to be helpful by giving these details, but that  
support at linuxant.com cannot officially provide extensive individual  
support for patching/building custom kernels for the modest price of a  
driverloader license ;-).
