// This code requires that we know the direction in which the stack
// grows. It is commonly believed that this can be detected by putting
// a variable on the stack and then passing its address to a function
// that compares the address of this variable to the address of a
// variable on the function's own stack. However, this is unspecified
// behavior in C++: If two pointers p and q of the same type point to
// different objects that are not members of the same object or
// elements of the same array or to different functions, or if only
// one of them is null, the results of p<q, p>q, p<=q, and p>=q are
// unspecified. Therefore, instead we hardcode the direction of the
// stack on platforms we know about.

// To measure the stack footprint of some code, we create a signal handler
// (for SIGUSR2 say) that exercises this code on an alternate stack. This
// alternate stack is initialized to some known pattern (0x55, 0x55, 0x55,
// ...). We then self-send this signal, and after the signal handler returns,
// look at the alternate stack buffer to see what portion has been touched.
// This trick gives us the the stack footprint of the signal handler. But the
// signal handler, even before the code for it is exercised, consumes some
// stack already. We however only want the stack usage of the code inside the
// signal handler. To measure this accurately, we install two signal handlers:
// one that does nothing and just returns, and the user-provided signal
// handler. The difference between the stack consumption of these two signals
// handlers should give us the stack foorprint of interest.
