Okay.

Well, I guess I mean I'd rather the end_of_stack() code not be
special-cased in the if. The default should be how it was. Perhaps:

if (IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_ARCH_TASK_STRUCT_ON_STACK) && task == &init_task)
return (unsigned long *)(task + 1);
return task->stack;

But it still feels strange: why can't task->stack point to the correct
place in this special case?
