I think we should have fixed hugetlb_get_unmapped_area() as well when we
added support for 52-bit VA. The reason for commit f6795053dac8 was to
prevent normal mmap() from returning addresses above 48-bit by default
as some user-space had hard assumptions about this.

It's a slight ABI change if you do this for hugetlb_get_unmapped_area()
but I doubt anyone would notice. It's more likely that the current
behaviour would cause issues, so I'd rather have them consistent.
