For some time the stacksize attribute was (eroneously) not honoured when
creating new pthreads. When this was fixed, severe fallout was found
in rump (and rump based atf tests).

The fallout was papered over by removing the custom stack size limit in
rump - someday we should investigate the root cause though.


  report on losage:
  commit papering over:

revert rev. 1.46 of src/lib/librumpuser/rumpuser_sp.c and run tests.
