For some reason my original reply did not go through:

I'm not sure if this helps, but this is number 66 in the series.
Fan, J. and I. Gijbels. 1996. Local Polynomial Modelling and Its
Applications. Chapman & Hall: London.
I was able to find it by searching on "fan gijbles" at a couple of on-line

The above three references are cited in Fan and Gibjbels. D.Christodoulou
might want to start with Cleveland (1979).

I am not aware of anything written for Stata that handles this case.

This is a good research question worth a literature search. Simonoff has some
discussion of goodnetss-of-fit:
