UPSTREAM: Fix build break in fork.c when THREAD_SIZE < PAGE_SIZE

Commit b235beea9e99 ("Clarify naming of thread info/stack allocators")
breaks the build on some powerpc configs, where THREAD_SIZE < PAGE_SIZE:

  kernel/fork.c:235:2: error: implicit declaration of function 'free_thread_stack'
  kernel/fork.c:355:8: error: assignment from incompatible pointer type
    stack = alloc_thread_stack_node(tsk, node);

Fix it by renaming free_stack() to free_thread_stack(), and updating the
return type of alloc_thread_stack_node().
