flat: tweak default stack alignment
The recent commit 1f0ce8b3dd667dca7 ("mm: Move ARCH_SLAB_MINALIGN and ARCH_KMALLOC_MINALIGN to <linux/slab_def.h>") which moved the ARCH_SLAB_MINALIGN default into the global header inadvertently broke FLAT for a bunch of systems. Blackfin systems now fail on any FLAT exec with: Unable to read code+data+bss, errno 14 When your /init is a FLAT binary, obviously this can be annoying ;). This stems from the alignment usage in the FLAT loader. The behavior before was that FLAT would default to ARCH_SLAB_MINALIGN only if it was defined, and this was only defined by arches when they wanted a larger alignment value. Otherwise it'd default to pointer alignment. Arguably, this is kind of hokey that the FLAT is semi-abusing defines it shouldn't. So let's merge the two alignment requirements so the floor is never 0.
