arm: Do not add padding alignment for hugetlbfs backed memory

The arm code tries to align the memory allocation size to 2M to potentially
make use of the transparent hugepages. But this would be problematic if we
try to allocate from the hugetlbfs, where the allocation size could be more than
2M. Given we support upto 1G, let use leave it to the user to align the
requested memory when hugetlbfs is used.

Without the patch:
 $ echo 1 > /sys/kernel/mm/hugepages/hugepages-1048576kB/nr_hugepages
 $ mount -t hugetlbfs -o pagesize=1G none /root/hugemem/
 $  lkvm run -m 1024 --hugetlbfs /root/hugemem/  ...
   # lkvm run -k ...  -m 1024 -c 6
   Fatal: Can't ftruncate for mem mapping size 1075838976
