Fix 'get_user_pages_fast()' with non-page-aligned start address
Alexey Dobriyan reported trouble with LTP with the new fast-gup code, and Johannes Weiner debugged it to non-page-aligned addresses, where the new get_user_pages_fast() code would do all the wrong things, including just traversing past the end of the requested area due to 'addr' never matching 'end' exactly. This is not a pretty fix, and we may actually want to move the alignment into generic code, leaving just the core code per-arch, but Alexey verified that the vmsplice01 LTP test doesn't crash with this.
