I would rather call it something like __djgpp_stack_top (it may not
be related at all to heap) if we did it.

I think the change to "jb" fixes the signed-ness issue - so I'm not
sure this is really needed.

The new top limit will causes problems with interrupt wrappers since
they live in heap space - fix is not to compile anything used in
a wrapper with check stack

I'd be interested to see this working, see how much of a run-time
impact it has, and how much checking the second limit changes the
run-time performance.
