It is ok, a tad too verbose. All I care about is a comment describing
what's really needed, the existing one was confusing and wrong.

I do not see why the stack depends on the PAGE_SIZE. I would be surprised
if you need more than a few bytes (given that soft_restart switches stack
again...), go through it with a debugger, it is easy to check the stack
usage and allow for some extra buffer (but half a page is not needed).

My main concern was alignment, and now that's fixed.

Thanks !
