That just means that my test-case was wrong (in the sense that what it
was testing wasn't what was triggering things).

It might be wrong because I got the stack usage calculations wrong,
but it might be wrong simply because the bug you've triggered with LTP
needs something else to trigger.

That test was more intended to trigger the issue reliably, if it was
just a "stack is special, needs that exact 2MB aligned case to be

So re-running my "t.c" the test for long times with that kernel patch
that removes the stack randomization isn't going to matter. Either it
triggers the case, or not.

I don't actually see any case where we play with vm_start the way we
used to (it was basically removed with commit 1be7107fbe18: "mm:
larger stack guard gap, between vmas"). So it was kind of a log shot
