Why did the "commercial compiler" (whichever one it is) produce code that worked better with hugepage stacks but GCC didn't? Could GCC be enhanced to produce code that would take advantage of them as that other copmiler seems capable of doing?

It is possible that the "commercial compiler" is using the stack more than gcc, and thus is more affected by TLB slowdowns on the stack area.
