Use 2m pages for executable large
pages and in large page requests less
than 1g on linux.

- Add os::exec_large_page_size() that
returns 2m as size
- Add os::select_large_page_size() to return
correct large page size for size_t bytes
- Add 2m size to _page_sizes array
- Update reserve_memory_special methods
to set/use large_page_size based on exec
- Update large page not reserved warnings
to include large_page_size attempted
- Update TestLargePageUseForAuxMemory.java
to expect 2m large pages in some instances
