Crud, the "killed" is definitely something this patch could cause.

I'm not familiar with UML. Is this the guest and the host booting rc8,
or just the host? Does UML use stack protection at all?

Can you try booting the guest to init=/bin/sh and try running some tests
to see what you can set 'ulimit -s' to and still be able to run a simple
command like '/bin/ls'?
