Subject: [PATCH] x86_64: Record stack pointer before task execution begins

task->thread.usersp is unusable immediately after a binary is exec()'d
until it undergoes a context switch cycle. The start_thread() function
called during execve() saves the stack pointer into pt_regs and into
old_rsp, but fails to record it into task->thread.usersp.

Because of this, KSTK_ESP(task) returns an incorrect value for a
64-bit program until the task is switched out and back in since
switch_to swaps %rsp values in and out into task->thread.usersp.
