Ok, so this looks like a 32-bit warning to me.

Hmm, so, on the one hand we do have:

$ git grep CONFIG_FRAME_WARN arch/x86/

which came in with:

5cb04df8d3f0 ("x86: defconfig updates")

and OTOH:

int "Warn for stack frames larger than (needs gcc 4.4)"
range 0 8192
default 0 if KASAN
default 1024 if !64BIT

default 2048 if 64BIT
Tell gcc to warn at build time for stack frames larger than this.
Setting this too low will cause a lot of warnings.
Setting it to 0 disables the warning.
Requires gcc 4.4

which is still 1024.

tip guys, maybe it is time to update lib/Kconfig.debug too?
