You'll need to determine how to retrieve the base address of the stack  
on your platform, and add the appropriate code to  
currentThreadStackBase to achieve this.  On many Unix-y platforms we  
use pthread_getattr_np followed by pthread_attr_getstack, but these  
functions do not exist everywhere.  Once you've coded up a solution  
that works on your platform, please submit a patch on https://bugs.webkit.org/ 
  so that the problem is already solved for others in the future.

Kind regards,
