I actually didn't suggest that. If you _really_ need TASK_SIZE to
be exposed, I would suggest to expose it in kernel headers. TASK_SIZE
is a compile-time information, and it may available for userspace at
compile time as well.

It breaks build for all architectures except x86 since TIF_ADDR32 is
defined for x86 only.

In comment to v2 I suggested you to stick to fixed-size data type to
avoid exactly this problem.

NACK
