Oh, sorry, I missed that the code has been changed quite a bit in Emacs
26.  I said:

    I can't reproduce in Emacs 26, but only because MAX_ALLOCA is
    bigger, I think.

But v26 exec_byte_code will allocate with malloc if needed, so the bug
is fixed (and MAX_ALLOCA is the same size).

Still might be worth considering changing the error, although stack
overflow doesn't describe it correctly anymore.  As far as I can tell,
SAFE_ALLOCA_LISP_EXTRA will only signal memory_full if the number of
bytes to allocate won't fit in a ptrdiff_t variable.  That should be
pretty much impossible, barring some strange bugs.  So maybe:
