Be careful with TASK_SIZE vs. TASK_SIZE_MAX. They return different
values for 31-bit compat tasks.

If the addr parameter is correctly aligned then the if condition in
crst_table_upgrade is superfluous as TASK_SIZE_MAX is now -PAGE_SIZE
with the introduction of 5 level page tables. It is important for older
kernels with only 4 level page tables with a TASK_SIZE_MAX of 2**53.

On the other hand if addr is ever a value between -PAGE_SIZE and -1
we would end up with an endless loop. That makes the if condition a
safe-guard and I would like to keep it.
