So I tested this with gap.c on an i386 VM running 2G/2G split memory, all
went fine. It properly stopped the stack growth before colliding with anon
pages.

I noticed that you included Hugh's last fix in it (mm: fix new crash in
unmapped_area_topdown). You'll also need Helge's fix bd726c90b ("Allow
stack to grow up to address space limit"), which applies without issues
on top of your patch.

I would have happily tested on an ARM board but I don't seem to have
3.2-compatible ARM boards with 2G of RAM :-/
