Actually, I think we can just get rid of min() line altogether.
expand_stack checks to make sure the stack is getting bigger, otherwise
it does nothing. We don't need to bother with this check.

The below works for me on UML x86_64 and ppc64 64k and 4k pages.

exec/fs: fix initial stack reservation

803bf5ec259941936262d10ecc84511b76a20921 (fs/exec.c: restrict initial
stack space expansion to rlimit) attempts to limit the initial stack to
20*PAGE_SIZE. Unfortunately, in attempting ensure the stack is not
reduced in size, we ended up not changing the stack at all.

This size reduction check is not necessary as the expand_stack call does
this already.

This caused a regression in UML resulting in most guest processes being
killed.
