Most stack allocation should be easily statically determinable
Some static determination is possible but not easy and not reliable (nor can it ever be reliable in the general case), and the error bars are large. See Olivier Hainque's paper in the GCC 2005 Summit proceedings for a pile of info on this.
TBH I'd expect that kernel developers' own hunches would be as reliable.
