27  allocated on the stack, which will last until the function returns.
28  Use of alloca should be avoided:
29  - inside arguments of function calls - undefined behaviour,
30  - in inline functions - the allocation may actually last until the
31  calling function returns,
32  - for huge N (say, N >= 65536) - you never know how large (or small)
33  the stack is, and when the stack cannot fulfill the memory allocation
34  request, the program just crashes.
