[driverloader] 16k Stack for Fedora Core 4

it is quite possible that a 16K stacks kernel will not be required on 
Fedora Core 4 since the stack wrapper can be used unlike in Fedora Core 
2 and 3. You can activate it with the:

dldrconfig --enable-workaround stack

command in a root shell or with the Web Configurator. The stack 
workaround is also automatically enabled with some wireless devices 
which the NDIS driver is known to require more than 8K of stacks.

Please note that the stack wrapper will not work with Fedora Core 4 and 
DriverLoader 2.27, it will generate a stack trace and the device will 
not be detected, this known problem will be fixed in the next release of 
DriverLoader which should be out soon.
