RFR(XS): [TESTBUG] Fix runtime/StackGuardPages/testme.sh to deal with 64k pages.

Hi David, 

that's just because of the stack size computation in os_linux.cpp.
It uses Linux::page_size, which is 64K, and Linux::vm_default_page_size(), which is 8K.
Red/Yellow/Shadow pages are all set to 1.

I already fixed a lot of jtreg tests wrt. the initial stack size.

Best regards,

The stack size specified is too small, Specify at least 328k
Error: Could not create the Java Virtual Machine.
Error: A fatal exception has occurred. Program will exit.

Why does the test fail? I would have expected a stack size that is a 
multiple of possible page sizes (up to 64K) to be okay.
