Yes, thanks for finding this. Even though I donīt like that people write
in-kernel code that eats up the stack (and especially not on interrupt
level, there may be nested interrupts) it would be OK to do in this case.
There are no dependencies on the interrupt stack size elsewhere, just 
enlarge it.
