6*4 is 20k... Ah, the well-known allocator overhead, I guess. Will try
with >= 40k.

Well, isn't the switchtest part of xeno-test? Would be unfortunate to
require a kernel rebuild just for running the standard tests. I think we
don't loose much by slightly increasing the stack to, say, 64K on 32 bit
and 128K on 64 bit archs.

BTW, XNARCH_THREAD_STACKSZ for x86-64 equals the x86-32 bit value (4K)
while I don't think the have they same demands (nor the same resource
