2.6.32-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Michael Neuling <mikey@neuling.org>

commit 803bf5ec259941936262d10ecc84511b76a20921 upstream.

When reserving stack space for a new process, make sure we're not
attempting to expand the stack by more than rlimit allows.

This fixes a bug caused by b6a2fea39318e43fee84fa7b0b90d68bed92d2ba ("mm:
variable length argument support") and unmasked by
fc63cf237078c86214abcb2ee9926d8ad289da9b ("exec: setup_arg_pages() fails
to return errors").

This bug means that when limiting the stack to less the 20*PAGE_SIZE (eg.
80K on 4K pages or 'ulimit -s 79') all processes will be killed before
they start.  This is particularly bad with 64K pages, where a ulimit below
1280K will kill every process.

To test, do:

  'ulimit -s 15; ls'

before and after the patch is applied.  Before it's applied, 'ls' should
be killed.  After the patch is applied, 'ls' should no longer be killed.

A stack limit of 15KB since it's small enough to trigger 20*PAGE_SIZE.
Also 15KB not a multiple of PAGE_SIZE, which is a trickier case to handle
correctly with this code.

4K pages should be fine to test with.
