Ok, I agree, there is no need to patch the reporting of stack base / size which are correct (obtained by pthread_getattr_np in a non-main thread).

So the real problem comes from the small default stack size (80k) imposed by musl.

I saw that reducing the quota from 64k to 32k in StackLocator.available() which checks remaining stack space, was enough to avoid the initial crash.

So the normal thing to do would be increase a bit the stack space for created threads.

I can't use pthread_attr_setstacksize before pthread_create, because of the use of C++ threads (what a pile of crap!). I tried to force a non-zero stacksize in PR_CreateThread(), but it seems to do nothing.

The 2 last remaining options: test if g++ -fsplit-stack would work, or reduce quota as mentioned before.

What do you think ?
