While investigating bug 1678152 I realized that we're unable to catch stack overflows reliably on macOS. It is odd because the way exception handling works on mach the exception should always be delivered to a different thread and thus the crashing one shouldn't be involved. I need to clarify why we're still not catching theses crashes and enable the test we already have for Linux.
