kern_exec: Add kern.stacktop sysctl.

Description

kern_exec: Add kern.stacktop sysctl.

With stack gap enabled top of the stack is moved down by a random
amount of bytes. Because of that some multithreaded applications
which use kern.usrstack sysctl to calculate address of stacks for
their threads can fail. Add kern.stacktop sysctl, which can be used
to retrieve address of the stack after stack gap is applied to it.
Returns value identical to kern.usrstack for processes which have
no stack gap.
