To summarize the problem as I am seeing it: Split stacking is used for growing stacks instead of the conventional fixed memory area. This has the benefit that more threads can be spawned, as only the needed stack memory is actually reserved. The problem here seems to be that the linker marks functions that don't use memory on the split stack accidentally as 'nosplit' because it doesn't find the split stack prologue. This leads to the linker calculating a wrong stack limit, which in turn lets the linker think there's no space and throws the error message at you.
Sadly, the only way of getting the tip version is to compile it by yourself. As Nick Craig-Wood already mentioned, you can find the instructions here. If you really really can't upgrade, you could try to work around this by allocation some arbitrary local variable in your
init functions. But this is very messy of course.
