Fixed.

Fixed.

The new commit message is the following:

===================================================================
Linux/ARM64: Make mremap() non-moving due to VA space woes.

This reduces overall performance on ARM64, but we have no choice.
Linux kernel default userspace VA is 48 bit, but we'd need 47 bit.
mremap() ignores address hints due to a kernel API issue. The mapping
may move to an undesired address which will cause an assert or crash.

Reported by Raymond W. Ko.

(cherry picked from commit 67dbec82f4f05a416a78a560a726553beaa7a223)

47-bit VA space is required by LuaJIT for keeping a GC object pointer in
TValue. In case of huge blobs that are mapped directly, `mremap()` may
move the chunk out of 47-bit range of VA space on ARM64. `mremap()`
accepts the fifth argument (new address hint) only with MREMAP_FIXED
flag. In that case it unmaps any other mapping to specified address.

To avoid this behaviour this patch restricts `mremap()` to relocate
the mapping to a new virtual address by set CALL_MREMAP_NOMOVE flag
instead of CALL_MREMAP_MAYMOVE for arm64 architecture.

Sergey Kaplun:
* added the description and the test for the problem

Needed for tarantool/tarantool#6154

Fixed. See the iterative patch below. Branch is force pushed.
