RFR: 8268127: Shenandoah: Heap size may be too small for region to align to large page size [v2]

> TestLargePages.java failed on Linux AArch64, where large page size is 500M, and the test is configured to run with much smaller heap, e.g. 131M.
> This is *not* AArch64 specific, just none of our regular test machines has large page setup.
> I purpose two invariants:
> 1) Heap size always aligns up to page size that is requested.
> 2) Region size always aligns up to page size that is requested if heap is large enough to accommodate them. Otherwise, it aligns up to regular page size.
> This partially reverts JDK-8266802.
> Obviously, this is a corner case and is unlikely seen in real word. The alternative is to disable UseLargePages if heap size is too small, e.g. align_up(heap_size, page_size) < MIN_NUM_REGIONS.
> Test:
