it's already part of 2.6 mainline and still is
(with Linux Kernel v2.6.6-bk9 that is)

Kernel hacking ---> CONFIG_4KSTACKS

mm is a patch for mainline, so no wonder it's been dropped in the mm patch.

just leave it disabled =)

Well, no vanilla 2.6 kernel has been released with make-4k-stacks-permanent.patch included... yet. And the -mm kernels often hint at what will eventually happen in the mainline kernel.
However the reason it was dropped makes it sound like a very temporary drop...

(If anyone reading this is confused: make-4k-stacks-permanent.patch removes the option CONFIG_4KSTACKS, hence making 4kstacks permanent.)
