    From
       From: Linux Kernel Mailing List <linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org>

    This assumption is wrong. It is totally possible for TASK_SIZE
    to be the entire 64-bit address space on sparc64 and thus larger
    than SIZE_MAX - PAGE_SIZE, and I definitely plan on supporting
    that.

    User processes live entirely in their very own address space seperate
    from the kernel, so kernel stuff does not take up any part of the user
    virtual addresses.

    Please revert this change, it adds absolutely nothing.
