Revert "fs/exec.c: use BUILD_BUG_ON for VM_STACK_FLAGS & VM_STACK_INCOMPLETE_SETUP"

This reverts commit 7f81c8890c15a10f5220bebae3b6dfae4961962a.

It turns out that it's not actually a build-time check on x86-64 UML,
which does some seriously crazy stuff with VM_STACK_FLAGS.

The VM_STACK_FLAGS define depends on the arch-supplied
VM_STACK_DEFAULT_FLAGS value, and on x86-64 UML we have

  arch/um/sys-x86_64/shared/sysdep/vm-flags.h:

#define VM_STACK_DEFAULT_FLAGS \
(test_thread_flag(TIF_IA32) ? vm_stack_flags32 : vm_stack_flags)

#define VM_STACK_DEFAULT_FLAGS vm_stack_flags

(yes, seriously: two different #define's for that thing, with the first
one being inside an "#ifdef TIF_IA32")

It's possible that it is UML that should just be fixed in this area, but
for now let's just undo the (very small) optimization.
