From: Benjamin Berg <benjamin@sipsolutions.net>

The threads allocated inside the kernel have only a single page of
stack. Unfortunately, the vfprintf function in standard glibc may use
too much stack-space, overflowing it.

To make os_info safe to be used by helper threads, use the kernel
vscnprintf function into a smallish buffer and write out the information
to stderr.
