Subject: [PATCH v28 24/32] x86/process: Change copy_thread() argument 'arg' to 'stack_size'

The single call site of copy_thread() passes stack size in 'arg'.  To make
this clear and in preparation of using this argument for shadow stack
allocation, change 'arg' to 'stack_size'.  No functional changes.
