SubjectRe: [PATCH 3/4] mm: move_page_tables{,_up}

Now that we're initializing the temporary stack location to
STACK_TOP_MAX, do we still need move_page_tables_up() for variable
length argument support? I originally added it into shift_arg_pages()
to support 32-bit apps exec'ing 64-bit apps when we were using
TASK_SIZE as our temporary location.

Maybe we should decouple this patch from the others and submit it as
an enhancement to support memory defragmentation.
