mm: remove alignment padding from anon_vma on (some) 64 bit builds

Reorder structure anon_vma to remove alignment padding on 64 builds when
This will shrink the size of the anon_vma structure from 40 to 32 bytes
& allow more objects per slab in its kmem_cache.

Under slub the objects in the anon_vma kmem_cache will then be 40 bytes
with 102 objects per slab.  (On v2.6.36 without this patch,the size is 48
bytes and 85 objects/slab.)
