I have used my modem with 4K stacks  since they were introduced  and have not 
had any issues.  no offence  but the 16K stack kernels  are a bad idea.  I 
would say make the driver work with 4K stacks in every case is much better 
long term.  It means  that you can concentrate  on supporting your core 
business and not a whole bunch of complete kernels  for different distros.  I 
know upstream will send any bugs relating to kernels you have compiled  to 
you.   that is a huge burden.
