Ok, this I think I should just apply, but would prefer to avoid
multi-line complex conditionals around things like this.

So how about the attached slightly edited version instead?

I didn't test it (and I'm not really committing it until I get an ack
or two), but it seemed all ObviouslyCorrect(tm). FamousLastWords(tm).

Comments?

Subject: [PATCH] exec: Limit arg stack to at most 75% of _STK_LIM

To avoid pathological stack usage or the need to special-case setuid
execs, just limit all arg stack usage to at most 75% of _STK_LIM (6MB).
