[PATCH] x86: deflate stack usage in lib/inflate.c
inflate_fixed and huft_build together use around 2.7k of stack. When using 4k stacks, I saw stack overflows from interrupts arriving while unpacking the root initrd: do_IRQ: stack overflow: 384 [<c0106b64>] show_trace_log_lvl+0x1a/0x30 [<c01075e6>] show_trace+0x12/0x14 [<c010763f>] dump_stack+0x16/0x18 [<c0107ca4>] do_IRQ+0x6d/0xd9 [<c010202b>] xen_evtchn_do_upcall+0x6e/0xa2 [<c0106781>] xen_hypervisor_callback+0x25/0x2c [<c010116c>] xen_restore_fl+0x27/0x29 [<c0330f63>] _spin_unlock_irqrestore+0x4a/0x50 [<c0117aab>] change_page_attr+0x577/0x584 [<c0117b45>] kernel_map_pages+0x8d/0xb4 [<c016a314>] cache_alloc_refill+0x53f/0x632 [<c016a6c2>] __kmalloc+0xc1/0x10d [<c0463d34>] malloc+0x10/0x12 [<c04641c1>] huft_build+0x2a7/0x5fa [<c04645a5>] inflate_fixed+0x91/0x136 [<c04657e2>] unpack_to_rootfs+0x5f2/0x8c1 [<c0465acf>] populate_rootfs+0x1e/0xe4 (This was under Xen, but there's no reason it couldn't happen on bare hardware.) This patch mallocs the local variables, thereby reducing the stack usage to sane levels. Also, up the heap size for the kernel decompressor to deal with the extra allocation.
