The SP is at 0x78, so less than half full.
    

Yes, the stackpointer can go upto address 255. With these values I 
doubt it is stack overflow.

  
Here is the program output now:

sending 2d bytes.
payload addr X:0xe091.
SP 72.
sending 7200 bytes.
payload addr X:0xe091.
SP 78.
    

So now the pointer keeps its value and only len is corrupted. Both 
rf_send() and rf_send_b() think payload is at SP-4 which is wrong 
for rf_send_b() because it has an extra bank pushed on the stack. 
The MSB of len (0x72) is not the old _bp value but probably the LSB 
of the return address after lcall __sdcc_banked_call. You can check 
this in the .rst file which is the .lst after linking.

I don't know why it does this, because it should know that banked 
functions require an extra byte on the stack.

  
I don't have a .rst for this file.  It appears this file is not created for objects linked from a library.

Any other suggestion on how to proceed with debugging this?
