I first thought that this is same/similar issue as the python, but it is not. (I think ruby may have same problem as python, but that is a separate issue)

What happens here is that ruby tries to calculate the stack size using `pthread_getattr_np(pthread_self())`. This does not work when current thread (pthread_self()) is main thread. Doing stack size calculation for main threadis non-trivial, if possible at all. musl developers has chosen the safe approach here and reports only the amount of stack size that kernel can guarantee.

This testcase illustrates the problem:


~~~
#define _GNU_SOURCE
#include <stdio.h>
#include <pthread.h>

int main()
{
        pthread_attr_t attr;
        size_t size;

        if (pthread_getattr_np(pthread_self(), &attr) == -1)
                return 1;

        if (pthread_attr_getstacksize(&attr, &size) == -1)
                return 1;
        pthread_attr_destroy(&attr);
        printf("stacksize pthread_self(): %zu\n", size);

        return 0;
}
~~~

When running it on alpine it returns:

    stacksize pthread_self(): 126976

Which is way lower than the 8MB set by ulimit.

Bug #14387: Ruby 2.5 を Alpine Linux で実行すると比較的浅めで SystemStackError 例外になる

CircleCI で Alpine Linux を使って Ruby 2.5.0 で Rubocop を実行した時に遭遇した例外です(Ruby 2.4.3 では発生しませんでした)。

Ruby のバージョンによって、再帰が止められるまでの回数に大きな違いがあるのはなぜでしょうか?
これは、意図された挙動なのか、Ruby の変更によるものでは無く Alpine Linux 固有の問題なのか、教えていただく事は可能でしょうか?

Alpine Linux の Tread stack size が比較的小さい事で、Ruby 2.5.0 からこのような挙動になったのでしょうか?

## 再現

問題の再現のため、以下の様な再帰するコードを実行します。

~~~ ruby
# test.rb
n = 100000
res = {}
1.upto(n).to_a.inject(res) do |r, i|
  r[i] = {}
end

def f(x)
  x.each_value { |v| f(v) }
end

f(res)
~~~

Ruby 2.4.3 で実行した場合、 10061 levels で例外があがりました。

~~~

一方で Ruby 2.5.0 で実行した場合、 134 level で例外があがりました。

```

また、Ruby trunk で実行した場合は 2.5.0 同等の結果になりました。
