[PATCH] hppa: Fix stack alignment passed to clone


The hppa architecture requires strict alignment for loads and stores.  As a result, the
minimum stack alignment that will work is 8 bytes.  This patch adjust __clone() to align
the stack argument passed to it.  It also adjusts slightly some formatting.

This fixes the nptl/tst-tls1 test.

Okay?

Dave
