I can't find a way to specify it in the pthread API.
Since those are kernel threads, which are handled the same way as
processes on linux, I suppose the same values as processes is used.
The stack starts at 8 MB and can grow indefinitely as needed. (I don't
think it is ever freed btw)

If we used user threads, we could have full controls over those things.
