Question regarding stack creation

From: Ake

Are all stacks created with alloc_thread_info?
(Except init_stack and the hard/softirq_stacks)
This is on i386 and 2.6.10-rc1

I am currently having the problem that sometimes when the kernel trips
into kgdb the stackpointer is pointing to memory that wasn't aquired
with alloc_thread_info.
