I've looked further in the standard and found the functions
pthread_attr_{get,set}guardsize(). These control the size of the
"red zone" or guard zone at the end of the stack. However the
documentation is moot and does not specify whether the guard area
is part of STACKSIZE set by the user with ptread_attr_{get,set}stacksize().

Clarifications, are more then welcome.
