[PATCH 5.4 094/108] selftest: use mmap instead of posix_memalign to allocate memory

commit 0db282ba2c12c1515d490d14a1ff696643ab0f1b upstream.

This test passes pointers obtained from anon_allocate_area to the
userfaultfd and mremap APIs. This causes a problem if the system
allocator returns tagged pointers because with the tagged address ABI
the kernel rejects tagged addresses passed to these APIs, which would
end up causing the test to fail. To make this test compatible with such
system allocators, stop using the system allocator to allocate memory in
anon_allocate_area, and instead just use mmap.
