ARM is supporting maximum 4 hugepage sizes (64K, 2M, 32M
and 1G) when granule is 4KB since very long and DPDK
support maximum 3 hugepage sizes.

With all 4 hugepage sizes enabled, applications and some
stacks like VPP which are working over DPDK and using
"in-memory" eal option, or using separate mount points
on ARM based platform, fails at huge page initialization,
reporting error messages from eal:

EAL: FATAL: Cannot get hugepage information.
EAL: Cannot get hugepage information.
EAL: Error - exiting with code: 1

This issue is visible on kernel 5.2 (stable rel), where
kernel is by default creating directories for each supported
hugepage size in /sys/kernel/mm/hugepages/

On earlier Stable Kernel LTR's, the directories visible in
/sys/kernel/mm/hugepages/ were dependent upon what hugepage
sizes are configured at boot time.

This change increases the maximum supported mount points
to 4 for ARM based platforms.

Yes, any supported hugepage size is announced in sysfs.

The change is in kernel 5.0 with:
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=a21b0b78

where all supported sizes are now registered.

Applied with small updates in commit log (especially commit origin in 5.0), thanks.
