parisc,metag: Do not hardcode maximum userspace stack size
This patch affects only architectures where the stack grows upwards (currently parisc and metag only). On those do not hardcode the maximum initial stack size to 1GB for 32-bit processes, but make it configurable via a config option. The main problem with the hardcoded stack size is, that we have two memory regions which grow upwards: stack and heap. To keep most of the memory available for heap in a flexmap memory layout, it makes no sense to hard allocate up to 1GB of the memory for stack which can't be used as heap then. This patch makes the stack size for 32-bit processes configurable and uses 80MB as default value which has been in use during the last few years on parisc and which hasn't showed any problems yet.
