I wonder why fedora kernel's stack is 4 kb.
8kb stack works as good as 4kb and there's ability to install ndiswrapper straight

Maybe there should be 8kb stack in fedora 9 kernel ?
Better to redirect this question to fedora-devel. But the short answer
is that 4k stacks are quite beneficial for many other reasons (see
). If you just need to use your Atheros
card, there are open drivers that work with 4k stacks, like madwifi and
ath5k. I'd suggest trying one of those out.
