Changing KSTACK_PAGES to 8 means each kernel thread in the system will
consume 32K of stack space instead of 8K. In other words, you'd consume
a little more memory for each thread. That's the only effect.
I think the Windows kernel stack is 16K, but I couldn't remember for
sure and I wasn't able to track down the reference where I discovered
the information the first time. Using KSTACK_PAGES=4 is probably more
