-- dynamic (de)allocation calls. If the main Stack overflows, a new
-- chuck of at least the same size will be allocated and linked to the
-- previous chunk.
-- Otherwise (Sec_Stack_Ratio between 0 and 100), Stk is an IN parameter
-- that is already pointing to a Stack_Id. The secondary stack in this case
-- is fixed, and any attempt to allocated more than the initial size will
-- result in a Storage_Error being raised.

-- the proper interface is established to obtain the address of the
