But how could I assume there is enough space behind this address to store a long
stack of functions calls for a same thread?
And if an interrupt is raised, would a reference to "current task" be
really consistant?

I don't know much about the bottom stack of the tasks, I'm not sure
about how much
space I can use inside... I should study this field. Who could be the
potential users of this area?
