[PATCH] m68k: introduce setup_thread_stack() and end_of_stack()

encapsulates the rest of arch-dependent operations with thread_info access.
Two new helpers - setup_thread_stack() and end_of_stack().  For normal case
the former consists of copying thread_info of parent to new thread_info and
the latter returns pointer immediately past the end of thread_info.
