On Ubuntu 12.04, stack size in emacs shell buffer is 8515 and
ruby gets segmentation fault. So I put 'ulimit -Ss 8192' in .bashrc
for workaround. (stack size in gnome-terminal is 8192.)

----------------------------------------
SEGV depends on stack limit size with 'ulimit -s <size>' .

This shell script [ulimit_change_test.sh] can reproduce SEGV on my Debian environment.
my Linux environment is Debian/GNU Linux 7.8.
But, I cannot reproduce this SEGV on Amazon Linux environment.

result on Debian 7.8

This SEGV occurs in `reserve_stack()` function.
I suspect that the `buf[0x100]` size is too small for margin.
I attached patch to fix it.
