If we add __stklen into the formula (untested):

	pushl	%eax
	movl	___djgpp_stack_limit, %eax
	cmpl	%eax, %esp
	jb	0f
	add	__stklen, %eax	; Ooooh, we do actually add __stklen!
	cmpl	%eax, %esp
	jb	1f
	popl	%eax
	movl	$0f, ___djgpp_stack_flowing_wild_eip
	jmp	___djgpp_stack_flowing_wild_exit
	popl	%eax

we detect stack underflow or local variable of sizes > 2GiB as well.
