The following 4 patches add supoprt for c/r of HUGETLB pages.
They are based on the original post by Nathan Lynch: 


I did some serious refactoring of your patches to be able to re-use
the existing infrastructure for memory-dump/restore in our code. It
would be great if you could double check that the results makes sense.

Also, I noticed that during restart the code ignored the 'shift' (or
huge page size?) and assumed the default one is used, while in other
places it does use the @shift value. Should there not be at least 
some sanity test and a clear error message in case of mismatch ?
