[Barrelfish-users] Stacks in Barrelfish

working on the port for the TilePro64 I am encountering a question:
How many different stacks are there in Barrelfish?
At the moment I have one initial stack used from the initial code, some 
extra stack, which is/will be used by the interrupts and a stack for 
every process / dispatcher.

I can't find a real pattern about all the stack-initializations. For 
example in the crt0.S for arm there is a stack defined with
         .space  8192

which seems to be special, but I don't understand to which component it 
belongs and how long it will live.
