For the main arena, the sbrk() is used as default instead of mmap()
and the granularity used when increasing the program segment is the
default page size.

To increase effectiveness with Transparent Huge Page with madvise, the
large page size is use instead.  This is enabled by setting the value
'1' to the new huge pages tunable 'glibc.malloc.hugetlb'.

Checked on x86_64-linux-gnu.
