the DriverLoader module reports the stack size of the kernel when it is 
inserted into the kernel. Here is a typical output of the DriverLoader 
module loaded in a Fedora Core 2 kernel, you can see this message in the 
output of the 'dmesg' command in a root shell :

driverloader: stack=4096/76/0 REGPARM X86_SWITCH_PAGETABLES

The first number after 'stack=' is the stack size of your kernel in 
bytes. In the example above, the kernel have 4K of stacks.
