In schred.c? Do you mean include/linux/sched.h instead by any chance?
Because that's the only place where INIT_TASK_SIZE is actually used.

Why do you think you can't increase it?

Um... you don;t want run RTL on a 8xx system; there are a  couple  of
bugs  which  have never been fixed - and we (DENX) will not spend any
further efforts on RTL.

Use RTAI instead, which will continue to  be  supported  on  8xx  and
other PPC systems.
