You'll need it for anything block layer depends on too - so that's much
of util/, crypto/ and io/ directories at least.
So perhaps it would be shorter if we do the opposite - set -Wstack-size=2048
globally for everything in QEMU, and then override -Wstack-size=$BIGGER
for the (hopefully) few sources that have a larger stack need ?
