When --no-huge mode is used, the memory is currently allocated with
mmap(NULL, ...). This is fine in most cases, but can fail in cases
where DPDK is run on a machine with an IOMMU that is of more limited
address width than that of a VA, because we're not specifying the
address hint for mmap() call.

Fix it by preallocating VA space before mapping it.

Notes:
    I couldn't figure out which specific commit has introduced
    the issue, so there's no fix tag. The most likely candidate
    is one that introduced the DMA mask thing in the first place
    but i'm not sure.
