x86: __memcpy_flushcache: fix wrong alignment if size > 2^32

The first "if" condition in __memcpy_flushcache is supposed to align the
"dest" variable to 8 bytes and copy data up to this alignment.  However,
this condition may misbehave if "size" is greater than 4GiB.

The statement min_t(unsigned, size, ALIGN(dest, 8) - dest); casts both
arguments to unsigned int and selects the smaller one.  However, the
cast truncates high bits in "size" and it results in misbehavior.

For example:

	suppose that size == 0x100000001, dest == 0x200000002
	min_t(unsigned, size, ALIGN(dest, 8) - dest) == min_t(0x1, 0xe) == 0x1;
	...
	dest += 0x1;

so we copy just one byte "and" dest remains unaligned.

This patch fixes the bug by replacing unsigned with size_t.
