[ Upstream commit 5330367fa300742a97e20e953b1f77f48392faae ]

After we ALIGN up the address we need to make sure we didn't overflow
and resulted in zero address. In that case, we need to make sure that
the returned address is greater than mmap_min_addr.

This fixes selftest va_128TBswitch --run-hugetlb reporting failures when
run as non root user for

mmap(-1, MAP_HUGETLB)

The bug is that a non-root user requesting address -1 will be given address 0
which will then fail, whereas they should have been given something else that
would have succeeded.

We also avoid the first mmap(-1, MAP_HUGETLB) returning NULL address as mmap address
with this change. So we think this is not a security issue, because it only affects
whether we choose an address below mmap_min_addr, not whether we
actually allow that address to be mapped. ie. there are existing capability
checks to prevent a user mapping below mmap_min_addr and those will still be
honoured even without this fix.
