SubjectRe: [PATCH] FDPIC: Ignore the loader's PT_GNU_STACK when calculating the stack size

The loader doesn't need its own stack, unless it _is_ the executable. It uses
the executable's stack. The problem is that the executable and the loader can
both specify the stack size for NOMMU, but which one do we pick, or do we
consider both.
