The maximum size of the huge page pool can be controlled using the overall
size of the hugetlb filesystem (via its 'size' mount option).  However in the
common case the this will not be set as the pool is traditionally fixed in
size at boot time.  In order to maintain the expected semantics, we need to
prevent the pool expanding by default.

This patch introduces a new sysctl controlling dynamic pool resizing.  When
this is enabled the pool will expand beyond its base size up to the size of
the hugetlb filesystem.  It is disabled by default.
