v2:
- use separate bug number from the tls accounting issue.
- check for arithmetic overflows.

Previously if user requested S stack and G guard when creating a
thread, the total mapping was S and the actual available stack was
S - G - static_tls, which is not what the user requested.

This patch fixes the guard size accounting by pretending the user
requested S+G stack.  This way all later logic works out except
when reporting the user requested stack size (pthread_getattr_np)
or when computing the minimal stack size (__pthread_get_minstack).

Normally this will increase thread stack allocations by one page.
TLS accounting is not affected, that will require a separate fix.

	[BZ #22637]
	* nptl/allocatestack.c (allocate_stack): Add guardsize to stacksize.
	* nptl/nptl-init.c (__pthread_get_minstack): Remove guardsize from
	stacksize.
	* nptl/pthread_getattr_np.c (pthread_getattr_np): Likewise.

OK.

OK. Happy to see this expression get simpler!

This operation needs a comment explaining why we subtract guard size.

You need to add a comment to nptl/descr.h to explain that stackblock_size
is the sum of the stack and guard.
