PA-RISC (which has an upwards-gorwing stack) bases this off RLIMIT_STACK.
By default, we set it to 80MB.  Of course, sshd likes to set it to -1
(unlimited), so we limit it to 1GB.  ia64 will presumably want to be
more generous in its clamping value.

I think this is all in the 2.5 tree now; if not you can pick up a recent
pa patch at
and look for it.  90% of that diff is drivers/input, so it's not much
to look through.
