Subject[PATCH] fix create_elf_tables on PPC

As you know, create_elf_tables in fs/binfmt_elf.c now sets up the list
of aux table entries in a buffer on the kernel stack before copying it
to the user stack. Unfortunately, while the buffer is big enough for
most architectures, it isn't big enough on PPC, which uses 5 extra aux
table entries (put on with ARCH_DLINFO). The following patch
increases the buffer to be big enough for PPC. (Note that each aux
table entry uses two elements of the elf_info array.)

Please apply this to your tree.
