with a stack of 256 bytes I assume you are not interested in a stack
with a guard page :)
you could simply create your own stack allocator - it needs only satisfy
following requirements:

- member functions void * allocate( std::size_t) and void deallocate(
void *, std::size_t)
- most important the pointer returned by allocate() must be the start
address of the stack and because ARM uses descending stacks (I know the
instruction set supports ascending instructions too) it must be the
highest address
- simply calloc()/free() should do it

- files fcontext.cpp and fcontext_arm_aapcs_elf_gas.S (headers?)

If the Cortex-Mx has no FPU so that you do not use the compiler flag
--hard-float (or so) to compile your code.
The asm preserving the FPU registers is wrapped by:

#if (defined(__VFP_FP__) && !defined(__SOFTFP__))

In your case the FPU preserving instructions will not be compiled.

For sanity you could explictly disable FPU preserving via the 4th
argument of jump_fcontext().

intptr_t jump_fcontext( fcontext_t * ofc, fcontext_t const* nfc,
intptr_t vp, bool preserve_fpu = true);
