Subject: [PATCH] Correct alignment of huge page requests.

When calling shmget() with SHM_HUGETLB, shmget aligns the request size to PAGE_SIZE, but this is not sufficient.  Modified hugetlb_file_setup() to align requests to the huge page size, and to accept an address argument so that all alignment checks can be performed in hugetlb_file_setup(), rather than in its callers.  Changed newseg and mmap_pgoff to match new prototype and eliminated a now redundant alignment check.
