The select() implementation is carefully tuned to put a sensible amount
of data on the stack for holding a copy of the user space fd_set, but
not too large to risk overflowing the kernel stack.

When building a 32-bit kernel with clang, we need a little more space
than with gcc, which often triggers a warning:

  fs/select.c:619:5: error: stack frame size of 1048 bytes in function 'core_sys_select' [-Werror,-Wframe-larger-than=]
  int core_sys_select(int n, fd_set __user *inp, fd_set __user *outp,

I experimentally found that for 32-bit ARM, reducing the maximum stack
usage by 64 bytes keeps us reliably under the warning limit again.
