I strongly disagree - this patch has been in fedora core for 2 years. Developers are not pushig this out of their ass. The total stack space is actually bigger due to interrupt stacks. Also, it improves scalability
Apparently the main issues (Xfs, etc) have been fixed so I'd say that 4KB stacks has actually improved code quality....
Larger pages are interesting but they also bring more fragmentation, also lots of no-so-old x86 cpus can't handle pages > 4kb very well AFAIK
