Anything related to stack-pointer operations. The stack pointer (SP) is a special purpose register found on most microprocessors or microprocessors cores (such as those inside microcontrollers or multicore CPUs) used to hold the address of the top of the hardware stack.

The hardware stack is an area of the main memory which is managed directly by the μP using a LIFO (Last-In First-Out) discipline. The assembly programmer can operate the stack using special instructions like PUSH and POP. The processor automatically uses the stack for some of its operations, most typically for keeping track of subroutine calls.

See Wikipedia on what is an hardware stack.
