Normally, task->stack is the bottom of the stack, the end_of_stack just
need to return task->stack.
The task->stack always represents the bottom of the stack, and it cannot
be changed, so what
happens here is we have some data(task or thread info)that we want to
put at the bottom of the
stack. The end_of_stack just refers to the size of the stack available
to us.
In ARCH_TASK_STRUCT_ON_STACK case, the init_task has been placed in a
fixed location, the task
is placed at the bottom of the stack. Current end_of_stack doesn't
handle this situation, so we need
add a if condition to handle it. And this is just like
!THREAD_INFO_IN_TASK(the thead_info on stack),
the thread_info is placed at the bottom of the stack, the end_of_stack =
the bottom of stack + sizeof(*thread_info).

Dongsheng
