How exactly would you handle a stack overflow in kernel space?

I think it is not that easy to gracefully deal with stack overflows, even if they get detected. What do you do, if the process scheduler triggers a stack overflow? Disable it?
Even for device drivers the general case gets tricky... [besides the fact that at least the device in question would have to stop working]
