There is actually a space after "sp," like this,

ffff2000080813c8:       a9bb7bfd        stp     x29, x30, [sp, #-80]!

Confused.  Why does this matter?  Why is the patched version superior?

<Resend in plain text.>

Right now, checkstack.pl won’t be able to  print anything on aarch64, because it
won’t be able to match the stating objdump line of a function due to this
missing space. Hence, it saw every stack is zero-size.

After applied this patch, checkpatch.pl is able to match the start of a
function’s objdump, and then be able to calculate each function’s stack
correctly.
