Purpose of _gcry_burn_stack

I am using parts of libgcrypt in my implementation of LUKS support in GRUB2.
Most of the ciphers have a number of calls to _gcry_burn_stack, but I can't
figure out what exactly this does. It doesn't affect the operation of the
ciphers (I currently have it commented out). What is the purpose of this
function, and can I leave it out?
