Subject[PATCH] x86: add boundary check for 32bit res before expand e820 resource to alignment -v2

fix hang with HIGHMEM_64G and 32bit resource.
according to hpa and Linus, use (resource_size_t)-1 to fend off big ranges.
analyized by hpa

Alex found:
for i386 machine the specjbb2005 still can not run with hugepage

-v2: it also fix hugepage problem
