    Subject[RFC PATCH 5/5] x86: change range of stack overflow checking
    Date
    The original stack overflow checking checks if a stack pointer is
    less than or equal to (curbase + THREAD_SIZE) as the 2nd condition.
    However, it is not necessary since the 3rd one checks if the pointer
    is lower than available stack size. This patch removes the 2nd one.
