Jörn Engel noticed that the expand_upwards() function might not return -ENOMEM
in case the requested address is (unsigned long)-PAGE_SIZE and if the
architecture didn't defined TASK_SIZE as multiple of PAGE_SIZE.

Affected architectures are arm, frv, m68k, blackfin, h8300 and xtensa which all
define TASK_SIZE as 0xffffffff, but since none of those have an upwards-growing
stack we currently have no actual issue.

Nevertheless let's fix this just in case any of the architectures with an
upward-growing stack (currently parisc, metag and partly ia64) define TASK_SIZE
similar.
