uml: runtime host VMSPLIT detection
Calculate TASK_SIZE at run-time by figuring out the host's VMSPLIT - this is needed on i386 if UML is to run on hosts with varying VMSPLITs without recompilation. TASK_SIZE is now defined in terms of a variable, task_size. This gets rid of an include of pgtable.h from processor.h, which can cause include loops. On i386, task_size is calculated early in boot by probing the address space in a binary search to figure out where the boundary between usable and non-usable memory is. This tries to make sure that a page that is considered to be in userspace is, or can be made, read-write. I'm concerned about a system-global VDSO page in kernel memory being hit and considered to be a userspace page. On x86_64, task_size is just the old value of CONFIG_TOP_ADDR. A bunch of config variable are gone now. CONFIG_TOP_ADDR is directly replaced by TASK_SIZE. NEST_LEVEL is gone since the relocation of the stubs makes it irrelevant. All the HOST_VMSPLIT stuff is gone. All references to these in arch/um/Makefile are also gone. I noticed and fixed a missing extern in os.h when adding os_get_task_size. Note: This has been revised to fix the 32-bit UML on 64-bit host bug that Miklos ran into.
