Where to find a Kernel/Kernel Patch with support for stack sizes >8K

I'm having some trouble with kernel panics using ndiswrapper and windows drivers. I know that some windows drivers require 12K+ stack sizes, so one of the things I'm trying to do is get a kernel compiled with a larger stack size. I've been having difficulty locating either a prepatched kernel or a patch that fits the bill. If anyone knows where I can get one, I would really appreciate it.

these are the only ones i know of
i assume the src rpms contain a fedora kernel with the patch already applied but the patch might be in the bundle somewhere if you really hate and don't want fedora kernel hacks

I would prefer not to use an FC, though I may not have a choice. I can't find the patch broken out. The problem was, I'm running gentoo, and my only connection is through a wifi. Said wifi causes kernel panics because a stack size of 8K doesn't accomodate the driver. I need network to install rpm2targz. You see my dilemma...
