    bpo-18049: Sync thread stack size to main thread size on macOS (GH-14748)
    This changeset increases the default size of the stack
    for threads on macOS to the size of the stack
    of the main thread and reenables the relevant
    recursion test.
    (cherry picked from commit 1a057bab0f18d6ad843ce321d1d77a4819497ae4)

Before this change, the test was skipped on FreeBSD:

test_recursion_limit (test.test_threading.ThreadingExceptionTests) ... skipped 'test macosx problem'
