Fatal exceptions on context-switching for more than two isolated threads

When I isolate more than two threads in RTEMS (the implementation can be
found here
I get fatal exceptions while context-switching. On stepping into the code,
the problem seems to be with the _User_extensions_Thread_*() call  just
after a context-switch, in particular when the iterators are initialized
inside this call. The issue is the fact that we mark the stack space of the
switched out thread as 'NO_ACESS' and then try to access iterators(which
belong to the stack space of the switched-out thread) from a different
thread, which leads to fatal exceptions.
I am not sure how to handle this issue because I am not very clear on the
purpose of the "user extension" functionality or its implementation. Any
help would be appreciated, as this may possibly be the last hurdle for a
mergeable thread stack isolation feature.
