Thanks for the patch! Please consider my comments below.

Was it done intentionally? You claim this as a plain fact with no
rationale. If this is a bug (by design) then mention it explicitly here.
Otherwise, you need to provide a reason why you change the semantics of
Lua stack reallocations in terms of memprof. For me it looks like a bug
we missed in the previous release: user has nothing to do with guest
stack reallocations (like with JIT related ones), hence these memory
manipulations are totally internal. Maybe you have another vision

This is a symptom, not another reason. So "As a result" fits better than

Profiler makes no allocations. I believe you would like to say that
reallocation occurs at first and after memprof reports the event.

Typo: s/at previous/at the previous/.

Please consider the naming and the workflow in lj_gc.c for such
situations: G(L) is stored into a separate variable and <old_vmstate> is
named <ostate>. It makes grep for such spots much easier, doesn't it?

We didn't notice this before. Now you leave not a single word regarding
this hack. How come?

Minor: you can use a TAP check here, but feel free to leave a plain
assert, since you expect <loadstring> works fine always.
